Winnie Taylor, currently at Cornell (where she taught me Employment Discrimination!), will join Brooklyn Law School permanently after having visited there this academic year. A member of Cornell Law School’s faculty since 1990, she also served as the Associate Provost for Cornell University, where she was responsible for creating and shaping university policy as it relates to faculty development and enhancement, diversity issues, academic programs, regulatory compliance, and recruiting. Professor Taylor is a national authority in consumer law, contracts, and credit and employment discrimination. Since 1978 she has served as a consultant for Fair Lending and Workplace Equity, focusing on equal credit opportunity and equal employment opportunity laws.
Following two years of private practice after graduation from SUNY Buffalo School of Law, she received an LL.M. degree from University of Wisconsin School of Law. She began teaching in 1979 at the University of Florida, where she taught until she joined Cornell’s faculty. She has been a visiting professor at the University of California's Hastings School of Law, the University of Utah, and Brigham Young University.
