Deryl Dantzler

Professor Deryl Dantzler


Professor Emerita



Professor Dantzler, who is a native of Macon and earned both undergraduate and law degrees from Mercer, joined the Mercer faculty in 1978 after eight years of private practice. She currently teaches Trial Practice, Advanced Trial Practice and Problems in Trial Evidence and is active in the Moot Court and Mock Trial programs.

Before bringing her interest in skills training to the Law School, Dantzler regularly taught on the faculty for programs sponsored by the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA, Southeast Region) and the National College for Criminal Defense (NCCD, Houston). In 1985, after NCCD was discontinued in Houston, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers selected Mercer as the host for its successor, the National Criminal Defense College (NCDC) and appointed Professor Dantzler as Dean. She continues to serve in that capacity.
