Professor of Law, Arthur L. Dickson Scholar, and Codirector, Global Legal Studies. (Business Associations; Comparative Law; Contracts; International Business Transactions.) Professor Dickerson earned her J.D. from Columbia School of Law, where she was a Stone Scholar, and an LL.M. in taxation from New York University School of Law. She also graduated from Wellesley College, where she was a Durant Scholar. She began her career in New York City at the international law firm of Coudert Brothers, where she became a partner specializing in international commercial transactions and worked principally with French multinationals. In recognition of her service, the French Republic`s Centre Français du Commerce Extérieur awarded her its Medaille d`Honneur. Following 12 years at Coudert, she became partner of, and later counsel to, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, a Philadelphia-based firm. In 1986, Professor Dickerson began her teaching career at St. John`s University School of Law.

Professor Dickerson`s scholarship has applied socioeconomic principles to business-related areas of the law, with a particular focus on standards of performance. Among her recent publications are "Corporations as Cities: Targeting the Nodes in Overlapping Networks," in the Journal of Corporation Law (2004); "Ozymandias as Community Project: Managerial/Corporate Social Responsibility and the Failure of Transparency," in the Connecticut Law Review (2003); "Human Rights: The Emerging Norm of Corporate Responsibility," in the Tulane Law Review (2002); "Transnational Codes of Conduct through Dialogue: Leveling the Playing Field for Developing-Country Workers," in the Florida Law Review (2001); and the following chapters: "Bracketed Flexibility: Standards of Performance Level the Playing Field," in Governance in Partnership and Close Corporation Law in Europe and the United States (Joseph A. McCahery, Theo Raaijmakers & Erik P.M. Vermeulen, eds., Oxford University Press, 2004); and "The Recognition of the Individual: A Human Rights Perspective for International Commerce," in Moral Imperialism: A Critical Anthology  (Berta Esperanza Hernández-Truyol, ed., New York University Press, 2002). Active in several professional legal organizations, including the Law & Society Association, the Society for Advancement of Socio-Economics, and the American Society of International Law, Dickerson has served on the executive committee of the Socioeconomics Section of the Association of American Law Schools. She also serves on the board of directors of a major international commercial corporation.
