Irene Merker Rosenberg

Professor of Law, Emeritus

Professor Rosenberg received her B.A. from College of the City of New York (C.C.N.Y.) and her LL.B. from New York University College of Law. She is nationally known as a scholar in juvenile justice and criminal law and procedure, and frequently publishes in major law journals. Her scholarly accomplishments were recognized when she won a University of Houston Research Excellence Award in 1993.

Professor Rosenberg has developed two new courses in the law school's curriculum: juvenile justice and legal analysis. She also teaches criminal law, criminal procedure and constitutional law, and is recognized by students and other professors as a rigorous teacher.

In law school she was on law review and was a Florence Allen Scholar. After admittance to the bar, she worked as an attorney with the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare in Washington, D.C., and subsequently practiced with the Legal Aid Society, Juvenile Rights Division, in New York City. She joined the Law Center faculty in 1974. She was the first woman at the Law Center to receive tenure.
