About Richard Chused
Chused, a professor at New York Law School, has broken new ground in areas of property and gender law. He authored a property law textbook used widely in law schools across the nation and has contributed chapters to numerous scholarly texts. He researched the temperance movement in the 1870s and how the women who led it were treated in the Ohio courts, as well as the impact of 20th-century landlord tenant law on impoverished tenants.
Before joining the New York Law School, Chused spent 35 years at Georgetown University Law Center and a year teaching at Hebrew University in Jerusalem on a Senior Scholar Fulbright Grant.
His featured lecture—the 2011 Distinguished Gifford Lectureship in Real Property—is presented by the law firm Starn O’Toole Marcus and Fisher.
