Mary Margaret (“Meg”) Penrose serves as a professor at the Texas A&M University School of Law. An experienced senior law clerk and attorney, Mary Margaret Penrose also functions as a member of several professional organizations, including the Section on Law and Sports of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS). She currently serves as the Section Secretary.

In order to address the diverse needs of the nation’s legal professionals and instructors, the AALS offers members the opportunity to join various academic sections. Administrative law, Internet and computer law, law and religion, and law and sports are just a few of the many unique AALS groups.

During the 2016 annual meeting, Professor Penrose spoke on a panel entitled “The New Frontier in College Sports: The Professionalization of Amateurism.” She spoke alongside NCAA representative and former professional quarterback, Oliver Luck and William Berry of Ole Miss. Professor Penrose has regularly spoken on issues relating to college athletics — particularly college athletes’ use of social media.

The AALS Section on Law and Sports functions as a platform for communication over which professionals can discuss recent industry events and ways to improve the sports law industry. The section is led by Chair Maureen A. Weston of the Pepperdine University School of Law and Chair-Elect Ettie Ward of St. John’s University School of Law.
