Alex M. Johnson, Jr., the ninth dean of the University of Minnesota Law School, served with honor and distinction from 2002 to 2006. He leaves a legacy of achievement consistent with the tireless drive, ambitious goal setting, and adaptation to change that marked his career before ascending to the position of Dean at the Law School. Receiving his early education in the public schools of Los Angeles, Mr. Johnson began his undergraduate education at Princeton University and then transferred to Claremont College in 1973. He remained in Los Angeles for law school, earning his law degree at the University of California, Los Angeles. Following graduation, Mr. Johnson practiced as an associate at the Los Angeles branch of Latham & Watkins, LLP.
