Memorial set for Gutterman

Emory Law will hold a memorial service honoring the life of professor Melvin Gutterman on Sunday, March 2, at 2:30 p.m. in Tull Auditorium.

Gutterman, a law professor whose legal scholarship spanned more than four decades, died Jan. 28. He was 70.

His career ranged from serving as the chief of staff of then-governor Jimmy Carter’s Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals to developing innovative courses using the latest technology.

“As I travel around the country visiting with our alumni and friends, rarely do I go anywhere without Professor Gutterman’s name being mentioned in the most affectionate way,” said Dean David Partlett. “We are deeply saddened to lose one of our colleagues and friends. He will always be remembered as one of the greatest teachers at Emory Law.”
