Theresa M. Beiner, Associate Professor of Law

In her pioneering work in sexual harassment law, Professor Theresa Beiner was the first to apply psychological, sociological, and other social scientific data to systematically determine which behaviors ought to be treated legally as sexual harassment. Her work includes articles in the nation’s leading law journals. Published just this year, her book, Gender Myths v. Working Realities: Using Social Science to Reformulate Sexual Harassment Law, is the first to closely examine ways in which the law fails to deal with realities of sexual harassment in the workplace.
