The National Jurist Magazine named Peggy Cooper Davis one of The Most Influential People in Legal Education this month. Dean David Van Zandt and Professor Frederick Schauer joined Professor Davis in receiving the honor.
Peggy Cooper Davis is a Professor of Lawyering and Ethics at New York University School of Law. She is also the Director of the widely-acclaimed Lawyering Program at NYU.
Working through the Lawyering Program, and through related interdisciplinary seminars and colloquia, Professor Davis strives to revolutionize legal education so that it systematically addresses the interpretive, interactive, ethical and social dimensions of professional practice.
Prior to joining the faculty of NYU in 1983, Professor Davis served for three years as a Judge of the Family Court of the State of New York. Professor Davis penned the book Neglected Stories.
