Linda Greenhouse is the Joseph Goldstein Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School. She assumed that position in 2009 following a 40-year career at the New York Times. From 1978 until 2008, she was the newspaper's Supreme Court correspondent and currently writes a biweekly opinion column on law as a contributing columnist.
Ms. Greenhouse received several major journalism awards while covering the Supreme Court, including the Pulitzer Prize (1998) and the Goldsmith Career Award for Excellence in Journalism from Harvard University's Kennedy School (2004). In 2002, the American Political Science Association gave her its Carey McWilliams Award for "a major journalistic contribution to our understanding of politics."
She is a former member of the Harvard University Board of Overseers and serves on the governing boards of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Phi Beta Kappa, and the American Constitution Society. She is one of two non-lawyer members of the American Law Institute, which in 2005 awarded her its Henry J. Friendly Medal. In April 2017, she became the first female president of the American Philosophical Society, the nation's oldest learned society, founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1743.
Her biography of Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Becoming Justice Blackmun, was published in 2005. Her other books include "Before Roe v. Wade: Voices That Shaped the Abortion Debate Before the Supreme Court's Ruling", co-authored with Reva Siegel; "The U.S. Supreme Court: A Very Short Introduction"; and "The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right" (with Michael J. Graetz). Her most recent book is a memoir entitled "Just a Journalist", published in 2017 by Harvard University Press.
