After eight long years away from Chapman's Dale E. Fowler School of Law, former professor Matt Parlow will soon return to Orange to succeed Dean Tom Campbell, who will return to teaching full time at the end of the academic year.
Parlow is currently the associate dean for academic affairs and a professor of law at the Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee.
Growing up in Southern California, Parlow always has had a passion for sports. From his youth to today, he always has been especially passionate about basketball – going so far as to say he bleeds purple and gold for the Lakers – but his love isn’t limited to just one sport.
His sporty disposition ultimately has fused with his legal practice, making him an expert in sports law who has consulted for professional teams and leagues on various matters, including the purchase of teams and collective bargaining issues.
