Doni Gewirtzman is a Professor of Law at New York Law School, where he teaches courses in constitutional law, legislation and regulation, and law and democracy. His scholarship focuses on the intersection between constitutional law and different areas of social science, including voter ignorance, the role of emotion in decision-making, and complex adaptive systems theory.

Professor Gewirtzman’s work has appeared in the Georgetown Law Journal, the California Law Review, and the American University Law Review, among other journals. He has also provided legal commentary on constitutional law-related issues for numerous media outlets, including CNN and the BBC.

Professor Gewirtzman is a three-time recipient of NYLS’s annual teaching award and he serves as Co-Director of the School’s Initiative for Excellence in Law Teaching (IELT).
