Introducing Guest Blogger Solangel Maldonado
I’m delighted to announce that Professor Solangel Maldonado is joining us for a guest visit. Solangel is a professor of law at Seton Hall Law School where she teaches torts, estates and trusts, a number of family law courses, and a seminar titled Race, Ethnicity & the Law. Her primary research explores how the law can encourage nonresident fathers to maintain and nurture relationships with their children. She also writes about transracial adoption.
Before joining Seton Hall Law School, Solangel clerked for federal district judge Joseph A. Greenaway and was a litigation associate with Kaye, Scholer, Fierman, Hays & Handler, LLP and with Sidley, Austin, Brown & Wood in New York. She received her B.A. from Columbia College and her J.D. from Columbia Law School.
