  • Author Information

    J. Shoshanna Ehrlich

    J. Shoshanna Ehrlich, J.D. is an Associate Professor of Legal Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She teaches a variety of courses including Family Law, Women and the Law, Legal Reasoning, and Children’s Rights. She also teaches an innovative Family Law Practice course in which students provide representation to a hypothetical client in a mock divorce case starting with the initial intake interview and concluding with the drafting of a negotiated separation agreement. In addition, she is an Adjunct Professor at Northeastern University School of Law, where she teaches Family Law.

    Before moving into the academic world, Professor Ehrlich was a family law attorney. She thus brings a real world perspective into her work as a professor and an author.

    In addition to Family Law for Paralegals, Professor Ehrlich is the author of Who Decides? The Abortion Rights of Young Women, and she is currently working on a new book on the legal regulation of adolescent female sexuality. In addition to having published widely in law review journals, Professor Ehrlich has a range of other publications, including the co-authorship of a training manual for attorneys who represent young women in judicial bypass proceedings, a legal resource manual for family planning providers, and a series of encyclopedia entries on topics such as the adoption and foster parenting rights of same-sex couples.

    Professor Ehrlich received her B.A. in Political Science and History in 1978 from the University of Michigan, and received her J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law in 1982.
