A pioneer in the field of environmental law, David Schoenbrod was at the forefront of environmental justice, taking on big business. Now, his concern has turned to Congress evading accountability to voters.
Professor Schoenbrod’s most recent book is DC Confidential: Inside the Five Tricks of Washington published by Encounter Books in 2017 with forewords by Governor Howard Dean and Senator Mike Lee. He frequently contributes to the editorial pages of The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and other newspapers and periodicals.
As staff attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) during the 1970s, he led the charge to get lead out of gasoline, dramatically helping to reduce the amount of the braindamaging contaminant in the air. He has also published articles in scholarly journals on environmental law, remedies, and the law and politics of regulation.
He began in law practice as director of program development at the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, which had been established by Robert F. Kennedy.
Professor Schoenbrod’s academic career includes positions at Yale Law School (1977) and New York University School of Law (1979–84), in addition to his current position at New York Law School. He holds membership in the American Law Institute and the Education Advisory Committee, Common Good.
