Professor Linda Edwards Appointed Boden Visiting Professor at Marquette University

Linda Edwards is the E.L. Cord Foundation Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Edwards has been appointed as the fall 2014 Boden Visiting Professor at Marquette University.

The Boden Professorship remembers Robert F. Boden, Marquette's Dean from 1965 until his death in 1984. In addition to his leadership of the Law School, Dean Boden was known for his writing, his teaching, and his engagement with the legal community.

The Boden Professorship was created in the 1990s and was first held by Daniel R. Mandelker, the Howard A. Stamper Professor of Law at Washington University.

Current Dean Joseph Kearney explains that Boden Professors contribute to developing Marquette Law School faculty and enrich the education of Marquette's students.

As the next Boden Visitor, Professor Edwards will be in residence in Milwaukee during the fall semester and will make several presentations to the faculty on her scholarship, including her recent article on critical legal theory's relationship to law ("Where Do the Prophets Stand?") and her new article forthcoming in the Journal of Legal Education ("The Trouble With Categories"). She will also teach her groundbreaking course, Briefs that Changed the World.
