June 5, 2013 - Dean Matthew Diller has announced that Kate Shaw will join the full-time faculty at Cardozo Law as an Assistant Professor of Law this coming fall.
"Kate is an extraordinary teacher, scholar and colleague," said the Dean. "She will be an enormous asset in building our school in the years to come."
Professor Shaw has been teaching at the law school as a visiting faculty member. Before joining Cardozo, Professor Shaw worked in the White House Counsel's Office as a Special Assistant to the President and as Associate Counsel to the President. Earlier in her career she clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens of the U.S. Supreme Court and Judge Richard A. Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She graduated with a B.A. magna cum laude from Brown University and with a J.D. magna cum laude and Order of the Coif from Northwestern University, where she served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Northwestern University Law Review.
Professor Shaw's teaching interests included constitutional law; executive power and seperation of powers; the Supreme Court; and gender and sexual orientation and the law. She taught an innovative class at Cardozo recently in which students role-played Supreme Court case arguments. Video of her class can be seen here. The faculty welcome her and congratulate her on this new appointment.
