Mary Ziegler
Assistant Professor of Law

Professor Mary Ziegler uses legal history to probe the assumptions underlying current debate about constitutional, reproductive-health and family-law issues. She has written extensively on the history of the eugenic legal reform movement, the abortion debate, divorce reform, and the same-sex marriage debate. Her research challenges the historical premises of contemporary constitutional, family, and reproductive-health law.

Professor Ziegler received her B.A. and J.D. from Harvard University, graduating with honors on both occasions. She served as the head of Harvard Law School’s Project on Wrongful Convictions. She joins SLU LAW after clerking for John A. Dooley of the Vermont Supreme Court and completing a term as a Ruebhausen Fellow in Law at Yale Law School.

Her articles have appeared or are forthcoming in, among other places, the Law and History Review, the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender, the Cardozo Journal of Law and Gender, the Brigham Young University Law Review, the Marquette Law Review, the Florida State University Law Review, the Chicago-Kent Law Review, and the Texas Journal of Women and the Law.
