Noah Kupferberg is Assistant Professor of Legal Writing. Previously he was Lecturer in Law at Columbia Law School. At Brooklyn Law School, he has helped to develop the Legal Writing curriculum and syllabi, prepared teaching materials for use by other writing professors, coordinated the Best Briefs Committee, and developed an innovative “contract” assignment between professor and student that is designed to start law school off with a drafting and negotiation exercise of genuine impact for the student. Professor Kupferberg believes that his role is to help first-year students adjust to the study of law and the demands of law school. He also has practiced at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, Cooley LLP, and Willkie Farr & Gallagher, working in white collar and regulatory defense and complex civil litigation. He also served as a law clerk to the Honorable Thomas P. Griesa in the Southern District of New York. Professor Kupferberg received his A.B. magna cum laude from Harvard University and his J.D. with honors from Columbia Law School. Prior to practicing law, he worked as an editor for Random House and as a freelance journalist for The Village Voice.
