Tamara Tabo


I work at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University, where I run the Center for Legal Pedagogy.

The Center systematically, empirically studies what law schools teach and how law students learn.  I use what we know about how brains work to inform better choices about instructional design and to help students learn better.  This brings together a statistically improbable number of my passions, academic credentials, and professional experiences: law, philosophy, cognitive science, and education.  Nothing I write on this site should be mistaken for the official views of the Center or the law school, however.

I also contribute to the websites Mimesis Law and Above the Law, where I write a weekly column on law & policy from a conservative-libertarian perspective.

My ATL author archives are here.  My Mimesis author archives are here.
