In Memoriam: Browne C. Lewis (1962-2022)

Dean of the law school at North Carolina Central University since 2020, Dean Lewis wrote widely in the areas of artificial intelligence, assisted reproductive technology, environmental racism, and inheritance law.  There is an announcement from the NCCU Chancellor here and a memorial notice from the University of Minnesota Law School, of which Dean Lewis was an alumna.

(Thanks to Dean Angela Onwuachi-Willig for the pointer.)
