Natapoff joins Harvard Law School

Alexandra Natapoff joins the Harvard Law faculty as the Lee S. Kreindler Professor of Law. She was previously a professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law where she was the Chancellor’s Professor of Law and co-director of the Center in Law, Society and Culture.

“Professor Natapoff’s influential and impactful scholarship on the criminal justice system has drawn critical attention to pathologies of the misdemeanor system, and argues persuasively that systemic change is necessary to realize the imperatives of fair process and equal justice under the law,” said John F. Manning, dean of Harvard Law School.

An ALI member since 2007, Professor Natapoff currently serves as Adviser to the Principles of the Law, Policing project. She will teach Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure at Harvard Law School. She and Professor Andrew Crespo will host a speaker series titled “Policing in America,” which will critically examine police practices and the possibilities for reforming the American penal system.
