I am delighted to welcome Suzanne Kim who will be blogging with us in September. Professor Kim is Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Judge Denny Chin Scholar at Rutgers University School of Law – Newark. Professor Kim teaches Civil Procedure, Family Law, and Sex Discrimination. Her scholarship, often interdisciplinary in approach, addresses intersections of family law, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, culture, and work. Prior to joining the Rutgers faculty, Professor Kim was a lecturer-in-law at Stanford Law School. She has served as an appointed member of the New Jersey Supreme Court Committee on Minority Concerns. Professor Kim earned a B.A. from Yale and a J.D. from Georgetown. She practiced law as a litigation associate with Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York and served as a law clerk to the Honorable Denny Chin, then of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
