    08.24.15 Professor Miriam Baer Chosen to Serve on City Marshal Committee
    Miriam Baer

    Professor Miriam Baer was among the 13 new members appointed to the New York City Mayor’s Committee on City Marshals. The committee establishes qualifying criteria for marshal candidates, identifies and recruits candidates, and recommends qualified individuals for appointment by the Mayor.

    “This new Committee on City Marshals is made up of members who represent our city’s diverse communities, and I trust they will recommend highly qualified marshal candidates to serve our city,” Mayor de Blasio said in a statement.

    The Mayor appoints six committee members directly. Three members are appointed after selection by the Presiding Justice of the 1st Judicial Department, three after selection by the Presiding Justice of the 2nd Judicial Department, and three after selection by the Deans of three New York City law schools, who each choose one member. Baer was Brooklyn Law School’s selection.  

    "I am honored to have been chosen by my school to serve on this important committee and I look forward to working with my fellow committee members," Baer said.

    In addition to this new role, Baer also serves as an American Law institute (ALI) adviser on the project “Principles of the Law, Compliance, Enforcement, and Risk Management for Corporations, Nonprofits, and Other Organizations.”

    Professor Baer teaches in the areas of corporate law, white collar crime, criminal law and criminal procedure. Her scholarship, which focuses on organizational wrongdoing in public and private settings, has twice been selected for the prestigious Stanford-Yale-Harvard Junior Faculty Forum. Her most recent article, Timing Brady, which offers a novel explanation for why prosecutors fail to disclose exculpatory evidence to the defense, was selected for the 2014 Junior Faculty Forum at Stanford Law School and appeared in the Columbia Law Review. Professor Baer has published her work in additional journals, including the Yale Law Journal Forum, Virginia Law Review, Boston University Law Review, Indiana Law Journal, Boston College Law Review, Florida Law Review and Columbia Law Review Sidebar.
