Nancy Reichman, Professor, has been at the University of Denver since 1984. Previous administrative positions include serving as Chair of the Department of Sociology & Criminology and as Interim Director of the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver. She teaches courses in criminology, complex organizations, women and public policy, and law and society. She is the co-author of "Gender Penalties" (with Joyce Sterling and Cathlin Donnell), a study of pay inequity between male and female attorneys. This study is being extended in a project, "Partners on the Periphery," that examines the effects of social capital in the development of careers. She completed a book, Ozone Connections (with Penelope Canan) that examines the social organization of expertise to implement global environment agreements. A final project examines the growth of multidisciplinary professional practice and the emerging contest over legal and business advice. Her articles cover a range of topics from understanding regulatory regimes to insurance fraud and white collar crime. Dr. Reichman currently serves as co-editor of the Law and Policy journal.
