Associate Professor Kimani Paul-Emile teaches in the areas of law & biomedical ethics, health law, legislation & regulation, and drug policy. Dr. Paul-Emile’s scholarship focuses on the role of race and law as structural determinants of health; race and drug regulation; and on issues that lie at the nexus of law, race and biomedical ethics. In 2011, she was awarded a Public Health Law Research grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s leading philanthropy on health and health care. Prior to pursuing her doctoral degree, Dr. Paul-Emile served as associate counsel at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, and practiced civil rights law at the Center for Constitutional Rights, where she was a National Association for Public Interest Law Fellow (now Equal Justice Works) and later the William Moses Kunstler Fellow for Racial Justice. Dr. Paul-Emile has also served as senior faculty development consultant at the New York University Center for Teaching Excellence.
