Creating and nurturing a stimulating intellectual community is central to the educational philosophy of the New York University School of Law. At NYU School of Law, the diverse community of those who shape the world through law engage in continually rigorous conversation about the major issues of the day. It is this commitment that unceasingly attracts top faculty from leading law schools to join NYU School of Law. Over the past decade, the Law School has added more than forty scholars to its resident faculty, striving to bring together the strongest professors in their respective areas of law.
Professor David Garland, widely considered one of the world's leading sociologists of crime and punishment, left his position as professor of penology at the Centre for Law and Society at the University of Edinburgh to join the New York University School of Law faculty. He also holds a joint appointment as professor of sociology in the New York University College of Arts and Sciences.
Garland is no stranger to NYU School of Law. In 1992-1993, he spent a year at the Law School, teaching Law and Modern Society and Sentencing and Sanctioning, as well as co-teaching Culture and Disputing with then Vice Dean Oscar Chase. He has since been a faculty member of the Hauser Global Law School Program.
Samuel Estreicher joined the New York University School of Law faculty in 1977 after working as a union-side labor lawyer and clerking with the late Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. of the Supreme Court and the late Harold Leventhal of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Estreicher teaches courses on labor law, employment discrimination law, and employment law at NYU School of Law. In addition, he is faculty director of the Center for Labor and Employment Law and executive director of the Dwight D. Opperman Institute of Judicial Administration, both at the Law School. He is also an active arbitrator and labor and employment counsel to O'Melveny & Myers.
