Professor Stephen J. Schulhofer


Stephen J. Schulhofer is the Robert B. McKay Professor of Law at the New York University.  He has written more than 50 scholarly articles and seven books, including the leading law school casebook in criminal law, and worked on a range of criminal justice and national security topics.  His book, Unwanted Sex: The Culture of Intimidation and the Failure of Law (Harvard University Press) is a comprehensive examination of our laws against sexual assault and other forms of intimidation and sexual overreaching.  The book argues that the law still fails to afford adequate safeguards against sexual abuse, and shows how sexual autonomy, like other basic human entitlements, can be systematically protected.   He currently serves as the Reporter for the American Law Institute’s project to revise the sexual offense provisions of the Model Penal Code.  He completed his B.A. at Princeton University and his LL.B. at Harvard Law School, both summa cum laude.  He then clerked for two years for US Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black and practiced law for three years before beginning his academic career.
