Prof. Barry Friedman

Vice Dean/Jacob D. Fuchsberg Professor of Law, New York University School of Law

Professor Friedman is a prominent constitutional scholar engaged in interdisciplinary research in constitutional theory and judicial behavior. He is also one of the country's leading federal courts scholars. Over the last several years he has written extensively in these fields, with his most recent work appearing in the Texas Law Review, the Michigan Law Review, Law & Contemporary Problems, and the Columbia Law Review.

He also is a convener of the Annual Constitutional Theory Conference. He has recently presented papers to audiences at the Annual Constitutional Theory Conference, and Stanford Law School. He has been a visiting scholar at the Rockefeller Foundation Study and Conference Center in Bellagio, Italy.

Professor Friedman has engaged in a range of service activities, including extensive involvement with the American Judicature Society.
