Vanderbilt University Law School Professor John Goldberg, an expert on torts, jurisprudence and political philosophy, joined the Harvard Law School faculty as a tenured professor this fall.
He is the author of "Tort Law: Responsibilities and Redress" (Aspen Press, 2004), a casebook now in its second edition, and he has published more than 30 scholarly articles in leading law reviews. He also serves on the editorial board of the law journal Legal Theory and is the senior editor of Journal of Tort Law.
A professor at Vanderbilt since 1995, he was consistently recognized there for excellence in the classroom. During his tenure, he taught an unusually broad array of first-year and upper-level courses and was awarded four teaching prizes, each received for teaching a different subject: Advanced Torts/Philosophy of Law, Torts, Contracts and Civil Procedure.
Active in the American Law Institute's consultative group Third Restatement of Torts, he will serve next year as president of the Torts and Compensation Systems section of the Association of American Law Schools.
After receiving his J.D. from New York University, Goldberg clerked for District Judge Jack Weinstein of the Eastern District of New York and for Supreme Court Justice Byron White. He then practiced law at Hill & Barlow in Boston before joining Vanderbilt.
