Professor Snyder teaches constitutional law, sports law, and twentieth century American legal history. His book, Democratic Justice: Felix Frankfurter, the Supreme Court, and the Making of the Liberal Establishment (W.W. Norton), is the first comprehensive biography of the Harvard Law School professor, New Deal power broker, and Supreme Court justice. A Guggenheim fellow, Snyder has published law review articles about constitutional history and is the author of The House of Truth: A Washington Political Salon and the Foundations of American Liberalism (Oxford University Press, 2017). Prior to law teaching, he worked as an associate at Williams & Connolly LLP and wrote two critically acclaimed books about baseball including A Well-Paid Slave: Curt Flood’s Fight for Free Agency in Professional Sports (Viking/Penguin, 2006). A graduate of Duke University and Yale Law School, he clerked for the Hon. Dorothy W. Nelson on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
