Amy Wax is the Robert Mundheim Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Amy attended and graduated summa cum laude from Yale University with a B.S. in molecular biophysics and biochemistry in 1975. She then attended Oxford as a Marshall Scholar in Physiology and Psychology. Wax then went to Harvard Medical School and Harvard Law School, before doing a residency in neurology at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center and working as a consulting neurologist at a clinic in the Bronx and for a medical group in Brooklyn. She completed her legal education at Columbia Law School whilst working part-time.
Wax has argued 15 cases before the United States Supreme Court. She received both the A. Leo Levin Award for Excellence in an Introductory Course, and the Harvey Levin Memorial Award for Teaching Excellence.
