Pam Metzger is a nationally recognized Sixth Amendment and ethics scholar whose work combines theory and practice in driving improvements in criminal justice.
 
Her scholarship, which has appeared in publications such as the Yale Law Journal, Vanderbilt Law Review, Southern California Law Review and Northwestern University Law Review, has been widely cited by leading authorities and by the U.S. Supreme Court.
