Daryl Levinson, the Fessenden Professor of Law, joined the Harvard Law School faculty in 2005. He teaches and writes primarily about constitutional law and theory. He has been tasked by Dean Elena Kagan ’86 with helping students and alumni who want to become law professors. In the latest issue of Harvard Law Today, he answered some questions about how students — and alumni — can become legal academics.
Professor Daryl Levinson was awarded the prestigious Sacks Freund Award for excellence in teaching during Class Day exercises on Wednesday, June 4. He marked the occasion with some humorous remarks, giving the class of 2008 a “review session” of the “ten ideas that explain virtually all of law.”

The ranks of the Harvard Law School faculty expanded over the summer with the arrival of three new assistant professors and two new tenured professors of law. The hires are part of an effort to bring about a net increase of 15 faculty members over the next decade.
