Professor June Carbone joined the Law School faculty in June 2013 as the inaugural holder of the Robina Chair in Law, Science and Technology from her position as the Edward A.

She is an expert in family law, assisted reproduction, property, and law, medicine and bioethics, and also has taught contracts, remedies, financial institutions, civil procedure, and feminist jurisprudence.
Professor Carbone writes prolifically on law and the family, marriage, divorce, and domestic obligations, including changes brought about by the biotechnology revolution. Her most recent books are Red Families v. Blue Families: Legal Polarization and the Creation of Culture (Oxford U. Press, 2010), which explores the effects of diverging values and norms in America, and Marriage Markets: How Inequality is Remaking the American Family (Oxford U. Press, 2014), which examines the widening class divide in the American family. Both are co-authored with Naomi Cahn.
