Haider Ala Hamoudi was named to City & State PA's Law Power 100 List
Haider Ala Hamoudi, interim dean of Pitt’s School of Law, has been included on the Law Power 100 List published by City & State PA.
The magazine publishes a list of the most influential legal professionals in Pennsylvania annually. Hamoudi was recognized for his leadership at Pitt as well as his expertise in Middle Eastern and Islamic law. The professor is also editor-in-chief of Arab Law Quarterly and advised Iraqi legislature’s Constitutional Review Committee throughout 2009.
Hamoudi’s research focuses on the complexity of the actual operation of law, rather than studying only authoritative legal texts at face value.
