About the authors

Professor Provenzano brings years of litigation experience and a commitment to integrated teaching methods to her courses in Civil Procedure, Employment Law, Employment Discrimination, Appellate Advocacy, and Effective Legal Writing. Her research interests lie in the intersection of advocacy, procedure, and rhetoric, along with legal education reform. Before joining Northwestern Lawrsquo;s faculty in 2001, Professor Provenzano clerked for the Honorable Ruben Castillo, U.S. District Court Judge for the Northern District of Illinois. She also practiced employment, labor, and commercial litigation at the law firms of Kirkland Ellis, Mayer Brown, and Franczek Radelet. Professor Provenzano received her law degree with honors from the University of Wisconsin Law School, where she served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Wisconsin Law Review.
