Julie Suk is a leading scholar of comparative equality law. Her research has developed a transnational perspective on the theory and practice of antidiscrimination law. Her articles compare European and American approaches to a broad range of problems, including the stakes of criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement of antidiscrimination norms, the state's role in mitigating work-family conflict, the law of Holocaust denial and hate speech, constitutional limits on race-consciousness and affirmative action, and the rise of gender quotas in Europe. Her work has appeared in Stanford Law Review, Columbia Law Review, American Journal of Comparative Law, and other venues, including European publications. She has also commented in the media, including the New York Times, on transatlantic legal comparisons. Last year, she chaired the Association of American Law Schools' (AALS) Section on Employment Discrimination, and is currently the the Chair of the AALS Comparative Law section. She was a Jean Monnet fellow at the European University Institute in Florence and a Law and Public Affairs fellow at Princeton University. She has been a visiting professor at the University of Chicago and UCLA law schools. Before entering law teaching, she clerked for Harry T. Edwards on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. She obtained her A.B. summa cum laude from Harvard in English and French literature, a J.D. from Yale Law School, and a D.Phil. in Politics from Oxford University, where she was a Marshall Scholar.
