A dedicated, charismatic teacher and mentor, Mary Joe Frug joined the faculty in 1981, after holding similar positions at Villanova, Boston University, and Columbia. Frug was a pioneer in critical feminist legal analysis, authored a case book Women and the Law, and was instrumental in establishing a course on domestic violence, one of the first in the country. While on a leave from the school in 1991, she was murdered by an unknown assailant near her Cambridge home.
