Linda Ross Meyer P`07, `11

Linda Ross Meyer, P ’07, P ’11, teaches criminal and constitutional law at Quinnipiac Law School and writes about mercy.  Linda came to the New Haven area in 1994 via Nashville, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Berkeley, and Lawrence, Kansas in order to work near her spouse, Jeff.  She is the proud parent of two distinguished St. Thomas alumni despite the fact that she missed the memo on several dress-down days and mangled a pizza-lunch Oreo distribution. She was a member of the St. Thomas Church Choir and St. Thomas Players from about 2005-2009, returned to St. Thomas Church in 2017, and now serves on the Vestry.  Linda is a founder of Quinnipiac University’s Prison Project, a founder of the Quinnipiac/Trinity higher education in prison program at York Correctional, a past-president of the Association for the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities, and the survivor of several non-profit and state government task force committees on sentencing, re-entry, and corrections. She has a B.A. from the University of Kansas, a J.D./Ph.D from the University of California, Berkeley, and she loves birding, kayaking, and reading (and occasionally writing) children’s fiction.
