Harvard Law School is adding Samuel Moyn to its faculty, beginning in July, as a professor of law. Right now, Moyn is working as the James Bryce Professor of European Legal History at Columbia University.

“I’ve spent my life in history departments, and I’m looking forward to very different stimulation in moving to this intellectual community,” Moyn said in an interview with The Harvard Crimson.


Moyn graduated from Harvard’s law school in 2001 and joined its faculty, first as an assistant professor. He was named a professor of history in 2007.

“Sam Moyn’s deep learning is rivaled only by his originality,” said Law School Dean Martha L. Minow in a press release. “His work on the history of human rights gives experts as well as students so much food for thought.”

“I hope to have very close relations to the History Department as well,” Moyn said.

Moyn had a book published in 2010 titled “The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History.” This spring, he has a collection of essays scheduled for release titled “Human Rights and the Uses of History.”

Moyn earned his undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 1994. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000 in the field of European History. He then earned his degree from Harvard Law.

“We are delighted to welcome him back to his alma mater and I look forward to being his colleague,” Minow said.
