Kelso Named Prison Receiver

February 12, 2008

Tags: Faculty & Scholarship, 2008

Professor Clark Kelso was named as federal receiver overseeing health care for California prisons on January 23. Kelso, who has a well-earned reputation as the state’s “Mr Fix-It,” replaces Robert Sillen, who has served in that role since April 2006.

Kelso recently concluded a five-year stint overhauling the state’s IT department. He will continue as a tenured professor at Pacific McGeorge but relinquished his role as director of the law school’s Capital Center for Government Law and Policy to Professor Leslie Jacobs because of the demands of his new assignment.
