Legal Process
John Quinn, an honors graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, also holds a PhD in English from Stony Brook University. He joins the faculty full-time this fall as an Assistant Professor of Legal Process after teaching the subject as an adjunct during the 2022-2023 academic year.
Before Touro, Professor Quinn taught the first-year legal writing course at St. John’s and Harvard Law Schools, the upper-level Political Science sequence in Constitutional Law and Civil Liberties at Stony Brook University, and eleventh-grade English in a Bronx public high school.
Professor Quinn also served as long-term career law clerk to the Honorable Raymond J. Dearie of the United States District Court of the Eastern District of New York. That appointment followed an established career in the active practice of criminal and civil law that included time in “big law” and a boutique firm and culminated in his thriving solo practice. With these experiences, Professor Quinn brings an especially professional and practical perspective to Legal Process I and II.
Professor Quinn’s academic interests include federal sentencing jurisprudence, evidence, the intersections of law with literature and spirituality, asylum, and legal translation.
