Naomi Cahn Joins UVA Law

Naomi R. Cahn, an influential scholar in the field of family law, trusts and estates, and feminist jurisprudence, will join the UVA Law faculty this fall.  

Professor Cahn has been on the faculty of the George Washington University Law School since 1993. 

“Naomi Cahn is one of those scholars who makes you say ‘wow’ when you consider the breadth of her contributions to the academy,” UVA Law Dean Risa Goluboff said. “With an eye to evolving understandings of gender identity, sexual orientation, and reproductive technologies, her scholarship explores cutting edge issues in family law, trusts and estates, and related constitutional law. Naomi is also a dedicated teacher, a generous leader within the academy and the profession, and an important public voice in areas of her expertise. We are delighted to welcome her to the Law School.”  

Professor Cahn has also been tapped as the inaugural director of the Family Law Center at UVA Law. The center intends to provide resources to students who aspire to careers in family law, facilitate exchange among scholars, and create bridges to alumni in the field.
