Anne Gordon joins Duke’s clinical faculty as a senior lecturing fellow and director of Duke Law’s externship programs. Externships enable students to earn academic credit while experiencing the real world of legal practice in a government or nonprofit setting. Duke currently offers individual externships, faculty-mentored externships, and integrated externships, including Duke in D.C. and the Federal Public Defender’s Office externship.
Before joining Duke Law, Gordon taught at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, where she helped lead the Appellate Advocacy Program and served as a senior research fellow at the California Constitution Center. Her research focuses on the constitutional right to education. She spent the 2015-2016 academic year as a distinguished visiting professor at Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey in Puebla, Mexico, teaching professional skills and comparative constitutional law.
Before teaching, Gordon was a staff attorney with the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, and practiced criminal appellate law and capital habeas with the Habeas Corpus Resource Center and the Fifth and Sixth District Appellate Projects. She has also worked with refugees in Ethiopia, sex workers in Chicago, and farmers in Cambodia.
Gordon received her A.B. from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and graduated cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School. After law school, she clerked for Judge Boyce F. Martin, Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
