Many JD applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose a law school, but the educational experience itself is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Each Wednesday, we profile a standout professor at a top law school. Today, we focus on Josh Bowers from the University of Virginia School of Law.
Josh Bowers has been a member of the faculty at the University of Virginia School of Law since 2008. Criminal procedure, law and justice are his primary areas of interest with regard to his teaching and research, focusing in particular on the way in which the everyday activities and choices of police officers, community members and courtroom officials, in addition to trial events, influence the adjudication and enforcement of criminal law.
Bowers, who earned his JD from the New York University School of Law, where he was a Law Review notes editor, served as a Bigelow Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School before accepting a teaching position with UVA. Other previous roles Bowers has held include associate with Morvillo, Abramowitz, Grand, Iason & Silberberg, P.C.; criminal defense attorney for the Bronx Defenders; and clerk for Judge Dennis Jacobs of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
