    Andrew M. Perlman

    Professor Perlman's work focuses on civil procedure, professional responsibility, and law practice technology and innovation.

    Professor Perlman served as the Chief Reporter for the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20, which successfully proposed numerous changes to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and related policies to address advances in technology and the increasing globalization of law practice. He is also a member of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s Standing Advisory Committee on the Rules of Professional Conduct and the Chair of the Section on Professional Responsibility of the Association of American Law Schools (2014).

    In addition to his writings in civil procedure and professional responsibility, Professor Perlman helped to establish — and is the inaugural Director of — Suffolk’s Institute on Law Practice Technology and Innovation, which offers programs, courses, public lectures, and other information designed to educate students, the legal profession, and the public about technology’s transformation of the practice of law and the delivery of legal services. He is also the Director of the Law School's Concentration in Legal Technology and Innovation.

    Prior to joining the Suffolk faculty, Professor Perlman clerked for a federal district court judge and practiced as a litigation associate with the Chicago law firm of Schiff Hardin. He is an honors graduate of Yale College and Harvard Law School, and he received an LL.M from Columbia, where he was an Associate-in-Law and taught legal research and writing.
