FRIENDS AT WORK
Professor Rosenbury’s research and teaching focuses on the law of everyday life: work, family, sex and death. She is particularly interested in how the law may influence seemingly private relationships and conduct. Her article “Between Home and School,” 155 U. Pa. L. Rev. 833 (2007), examines these issues in the context of childrearing. That article was selected for presentation at the 2006 Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum as the best paper in the family law category. " Friends with Benefits?," 106 Mich. L. Rev. 189 (2007), explores the law's role in maintaining the divide between friends and family, asking why the law fails to recognize relationship between adults that do not center around sexual activity. Her forthcoming article, "Sex In and Out of Intimacy," co-authored with Jennifer Rothman, conversely analyzes the law's treatment of sex outside of marriage - like relationships. Professor Rosenbury joined the law school in the fall of 2002. In 2006 she was named the Professor of the Year. Before joining the faculty, she served as an associate in the litigation department at Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York and as an adjunct professor at Fordham University School of Law.

MONEY CAN'T BUY ME LOVE: SEX THERAPY IN THE AGE OF VIAGRA (co-author Susan Appleton)
Susan Stiritz is a lecturer in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Washington University. After graduating from a women’s college, I was disheartened to discover, when I entered the work force, that the outside world treated women as less competent, valued, and deserving than men. Working as a writer/photographer for St. Louis’s antipoverty agency, however, I also found exemplars of nonviolent resistance and community action, who demonstrated that a critical stance and hard work could redeem life in a bigoted society. My intellectual interests have focused on issues of social justice ever since. While teaching Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies courses, I am also pursuing an MSW at the Brown School.
