Mary Anne Case is Arnold I. Shure Professor of Law at the University of Chicago and she will be the Crane Fellow at LAPA in 2006-2007. Her scholarship to date has concentrated on the regulation of sex, gender and sexuality, although she also has done work on other aspects of constitutional and comparative law and on the early history of feminism. A graduate of Yale College and the Harvard Law School, she studied at the University of Munich and litigated for Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison before joining the faculty of the University of Virginia, where she rose to become Professor of Law and Class of 1966 Research Professor. She returned to her native New York City as a Visiting Professor of Law at N.Y.U. during the academic year 1996-7 and again in the spring of 1999. In the spring of 2004, she was a Bosch Public Policy fellow at the American Academy in Berlin, studying the application of the German abortion laws. While at Princeton, she will continue her work on the role of the state in marriage.
