|McClain, Linda, JD, LLM|
Linda C. McClain is Professor of Law and Paul M. Siskind Research Scholar at Boston University School of Law. She is nationally known for her work in family law and feminist legal theory and speaks frequently to the press on matters of family law and policy, including debates over marriage. Her book, The Place of Families: Fostering Capacity, Equality, and Responsibility (Harvard University Press, 2006), offers a liberal and feminist perspective on the relationship between family life and the polity and on a number of contested issues of family law and policy. She is also co-editor of Gender Equality: Dimensions of Women's Equal Citizenship (with Joanna Grossman) (Cambridge University Press, 2009), which examines the problem of the persistence of gender inequality despite national and international commitments to the equal citizenship of women and men. She is the co-author (with James Fleming) of a forthcoming book examining prominent critiques of rights, Rights, Responsibilities, and Virtues (under contract with Harvard) and is also working on an interdisciplinary collection, What is Parenthood? (with Daniel Cere). Before joining the faculty of Boston University School of Law, she was the Rivkin Radler Distinguished Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School and practiced litigation at Cravath, Swaine & Moore. A former faculty fellow at the Harvard University Center for Ethics and the Professions, she has been a visiting professor of law at Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Virginia.
