Professor of History
Daniel Sharfstein’s scholarship focuses on the legal history of race and citizenship in the United States. His first book, The Invisible Line: Three American Families and the Secret Journey from Black to White, won the 2012 J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize for excellence in non-fiction as well as the Law & Society Association’s 2012 James Willard Hurst Jr. Prize for socio-legal history, the William Nelson Cromwell Book Prize from the American Society for Legal History, and the Chancellor’s Award for Research from Vanderbilt.
LAS facilitates opportunities for law students to give back to traditionally underrepresented groups through community service, pro bono, and special projects within a space where service and public interest are recognized as vital parts of a legal education and career.
