Curriculum Vitae (pdf)
Elizabeth M. Glazer, an Associate Professor of Law at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University 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.
"Voted "Teacher of the Year" by 2011's graduating 3Ls at Hofstra, Professor Glazer has taught courses in Property, Law & Sexuality, Antidiscrimination Law, the First Amendment, Transactional Lawyering, and Business Drafting. She taught Property at Northwestern during the Fall of 2011, and will teach Law & Sexuality and Transgender Rights at Northwestern during the Spring of 2013. Glazer's research has appeared in journals such as the Georgetown Law Journal, Northwestern University Law Review (and the Colloquy), Harvard Journal of Law & Gender, Columbia Law Review Sidebar, Hofstra Law Review, and University of Pennsylvania Law Review Pennumbra, among other journals. In fact, the Georgetown Law Journal devoted a mini-symposium to her article, "Sexual Reorientation," in its 2012 centennial volume. "Sexual Reorientation" was also the basis of the 40th Annual Hofstra University Distinguished Lecture, which Glazer delivered in the Fall of 2011 as a result of her sole, anonymous selection by a committee of faculty members from across the university. Glazer has researched the legal treatment of sexual minorities--in particular, bisexuals, transgender individuals, and polyamorists--who do not fit neatly within antidiscrimination law's established identity categories. Glazer's work on behalf of sexual minorities earned her selection by the National LGBT Bar Association as one of the "Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40" in 2010. In Glazer's most recent work, she has begun to incorporate research on the benefits of failure--a theme Glazer began exploring when preparing the "Meta-Graduation Speech: A Graduation Speech About Graduation Speeches" she delivered in 2011--into work related to the expansion of employment discrimination laws."
