About the Presenter:

Patricia J. Williams is the James L. Dohr Professor of Law at Columbia University, where she has been tenured since 1992. A graduate of Wellesley College and Harvard Law School, Dr. Williams began her career practicing law as a consumer and health law advocate for the Western Center on Law and Poverty, and as a Deputy City Attorney for the City of Los Angeles. Upon leaving practice, she served on faculties of the University of Wisconsin School of Law, Harvard University Women's Studies Program, and CUNY Law School at Queen's College. Dr. Williams has published widely in the areas of race, gender, and law, and on other issues of legal theory and legal writing including The Rooster's Egg and Seeing a ColorBlind Future: The Paradox of Race. Her book, The Alchemy of Race and Rights was named a “feminist classic” and one of the twenty-five best books of 1991, while her 1988 article, On Being The Object of Property, remains one of the most cited pieces ever published in Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society. Her award-winning column, "Diary of a Mad Law Professor," has appeared monthly in The Nation Magazine for two decades.
