Professor Elizabeth Schneider Named Top-Cited Scholar in Feminist Legal Studies


Professor Elizabeth Schneider, a national expert in the fields of federal civil litigation, procedure, gender law, and domestic violence, has again been recognized as one of the most-cited feminist and critical race scholars, according to Brian Leiter's Law School Reports, an influential legal blog.

Schneider is ranked 18th on the list of “20 Most-Cited Critical Theories of Law (Feminist and Critical Race) Scholars in the U.S., 2013-2017.” The list draws upon data from a 2018 study examining the top law faculties for scholarly impact. In that study, Brooklyn Law School placed 44th nationally.

Schneider, director of the Edward V. Sparer Public Interest Law Fellowship Program, is the author of the prize-winning book, Battered Women and Feminist Lawmaking (Yale University Press, 2000) and co-author of several other books in this area. She also has written prolifically on civil rights, civil procedure, domestic violence and women’s rights, and she has been a highly sought-after commentator on such issues in print and broadcast media.

Schneider is a member of the American Law Institute and chair of the Judicial-Academic Network of the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ). She has been honored by numerous organizations such as the National Organization of Women-NYC and the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence. She has been active in legal education, serving as a member of the AALS Executive Committee and on the Board of Governors of the Society of American Law Teachers.
