Daryl Levinson to return to faculty after five years at Harvard
Daryl Levinson will return to the NYU School of Law faculty in the fall of 2010, after five years at Harvard Law School. “Daryl is a leading expert in constitutional law and theory, and one of the very best public law scholars in the country,” said Dean Richard Revesz. “An extraordinarily erudite academic, he draws upon interdisciplinary sources from economics, public choice, political theory, and philosophy, and his highly original scholarship touches on an exceptionally broad array of issues.”
Levinson was an NYU Law faculty member from 2002 to 2005, and was the Bonnie & Richard Reiss Professor of Constitutional Law. During the current academic year, he has been a fellow at the Law School’s Straus Institute for the Advanced Study of Law & Justice, where his research is focused on the relationship between international and constitutional law.
After receiving his B.A. from Harvard University in 1990, Levinson earned his J.D. and M.A. from the University of Virginia in 1995. He is currently the Fessenden Professor of Law at Harvard. A highly acclaimed teacher, he won the Sachs-Freund Teaching award at Harvard in 2008.
