Jerry L. Mashaw, Lawyer and Educator at Yale University Law School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in law education.

Originally a philosophy major at Tulane University, Mr. Marshall discovered an interest in law and decided to pursue the field of law. Once he earned a BA from the institution in 1962, he remained at the institution and earned a LLB in 1964, also receiving admittance to the Louisiana bar that same year. He considers his time at Tulane University to be a career highlight as law was taught as a comparative enterprise where he and his cohorts examined common law versus civil law solutions to the same problem. This approach shaped the way Mr. Marshall looked at law and in his career and he has considered this method often when conducting research writing, and mentoring others. Several years after his time at Tulane University, Mr. Marshall earned a PhD in European governmental studies from the University of Edinburgh in 1969.

Mr. Mashaw has held numerous positions throughout the course of his career and has been affiliated with the Yale University Law School since 1976. He was a William Nelson Cromwell Professor from 1982 to 1991, deputy dean from 1990 to 1991, a Gordon Bradford Tweedy Professor from 1991 and 1994, has been a Sterling Professor since 1994 and currently holds emeritus status with the institution. Prior to his time with Yale University, Mr. Mashaw worked as a professor with the University of Virginia and briefly taught at Tulane University. In addition to his main pursuits, Mr. Marshaw consulted for the Center for the Administration of Justice and was a fellow for the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, among other occupations. As a testament to his success, Mr. Mashaw has been featured in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, Who’s Who in American Law and Who’s Who in the East.
