Elizabeth Warren
Professor Elizabeth Warren joined the faculty of Harvard Law School in 1992 as the Robert Braucher Visiting Professor of Commercial Law and became the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law in 1995. She is the coauthor of ALL YOUR WORTH, just published in March and on the best-seller list. Her earlier book, THE TWO-INCOME TRAP: WHY MIDDLE CLASS MOTHERS AND FATHERS ARE GOING BROKE has been cited by senators and presidential candidates, and her earlier award-winning books include AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS: BANKRUPTCY AND CONSUMER LAW IN AMERICA, THE FRAGILE MIDDLE CLASS, BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY, and three leading casebooks.

Warren is the Vice-President of the American Law Institute and is on the Executive Committee of the National Bankruptcy Conference. She directed the National Bankruptcy Review Commissions study of federal bankruptcy laws and drafted its report to Congress. Chief Justice Rehnquist appointed Professor Warren to the Judicial Education Committee of the Federal Judicial Center from 1990 to 1999. The National Law Journal named her one of the Fifty Most Influential Women Lawyers in America. Harvard students voted her the Sacks and Freund Award for teaching excellence.

Prior to teaching at Harvard, Professor Warren was the William A. Schnader Professor of Commercial Law at University of Pennsylvania School of Law and also taught at the University of Texas School of Law, University of Houston Law Center, University of Michigan and Rutgers Law School. We look forward to Ms. Warren’s commencement speech as she highly regarded not only as an academic and a legal scholar, but also as an inspiring and entertaining speaker.
