Professor Ndjuoh MehChu joined Seton Hall Law in July 2020. He teaches in the areas of torts, civil rights, and critical race theory. Current research projects bring to bear legal realist claims about the interplay of power and oppression to explore the various ways institutions fail to implement rights-protective measures for marginalized groups.
Prior to joining the Law School, Professor MehChu was an inaugural Thurgood Marshall Law Teaching Fellow at Howard University School of Law. He was also a legal fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, where he worked on issues related to criminal justice reform and children’s rights. Professor MehChu clerked for the Honorable Jack B. Weinstein on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
Before attending law school Professor MehChu was a special education and math teacher in the South Bronx, New York. Raised in Jersey City, New Jersey, he holds a B.A. in Africana Studies with highest honors and a B.A. in economics from Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and is a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School.
