Houston Business Journal: Meet the Dean Who Fosters Tomorrow’s Legal Workforce
Michael Barry, dean of the South Texas College of Law Houston, grew up in a military home and moved all over the country. Since his father was a lawyer for the U.S. Coast Guard, Barry watched his father navigate the legal system. It was his father’s example that inspired Barry to pursue a career in law.
“The concern he had, that every individual had a fair trial, was what the justice system should be,” Barry said. “It isn’t about prosecutors seeking wins, but ensuring justice is accomplished.”
Following on the heels of his father’s legacy, Barry is passionate about advocating for clients whose stories need to be heard and fair justice delivered.
