Elizabeth M. Glazer, an Associate Professor of Law at Hofstra University Law School and the Co-director of the Hofstra LGBT Rights Fellowship, received B.A. and M.A. degrees in philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001. Professor Glazer received a J.D. in 2004 from the University of Chicago, while serving as a member of the Law Review. Following graduation from law school, Professor Glazer was associated with the New York office of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP.
Professor Glazer's research examines the topic of exclusion in the First Amendment, antidiscrimination law, and property law. Recent work has focused on the legal treatment of sexual minorities—specifically, bisexuals, transgender individuals, and polyamorists—who do not fit precisely into antidiscrimination law’s established identity categories. Glazer's recent work has appeared in the Northwestern University Law Review, the Northwestern University Law Review Colloquy, the Columbia Law Review Sidebar, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review Pennumbra, the Temple Political & Civil Rights Law Review, and the Hofstra Law Review, among other journals. Glazer has also been invited to deliver lectures at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Northwestern University School of Law, the University of Chicago Law School, the University of Illinois College of Law, the University of Minnesota Law School, among other schools, and to Morgan Stanley, Nixon Peabody LLP, The City of New York’s Department of Juvenile Justice, among other organizations. In 2010, Glazer was selected by the National LGBT Bar Association as one of the “Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40.” Professor Glazer teaches courses in First Amendment, Jurisprudence, Property, Law & Sexuality, Business Drafting, and Transactional Lawyering.
