The Legal History Blog welcomes Bridget Crawford, Pace Law School, who will be guest blogging this month. Bridget's day job involves teaching tax, trusts and estates, and feminist legal theory, and her writing focuses especially on gender and tax policy, but she is also a great Friend of Legal History. I have often noticed Bridget's history-related posts at Feminist Law Professors, where she often notices scholarship and opportunities that I have missed.
Bridget's J.D. is from the University of Pennsylvania, where she worked with Sally Gordon. Her work in legal history includes "Daughter of Liberty Wedded to Law’: Gender and Legal Education at the University of Pennsylvania Law Department 1870-1900," 6 The Journal of Gender, Race & Justice 131 (2002). Bridget's forthcoming scholarship includes "Sticky Copyrights: Discriminatory Tax Restraints on the Transfer of Intellectual Property," 67 Washington and Lee Law Review (forthcoming 2010) and "Taxation, Pregnancy and Privacy," 16 William and Mary Journal of Women and the Law (forthcoming 2010). She has taught at Pace since 2003, and in 2005, 2006, and 2007, Pace's graduating classes selected her as the Barbara C. Salken Outstanding Professor of the Year. She serves as Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development at Pace and she is a member of the American Law Institute.
