Anthony Kronman is Sterling Professor of Law at Yale Law School, teaching in the areas of contracts, bankruptcy, jurisprudence, social theory, and professional responsibility. After stepping down from the position of Dean of Yale Law School, Kronman has focused his scholarly attention on the humanities, for example, on higher education's current disregard for questions about the meaning of life, as explored in his 2007 book Education's End. There, Kronman made a compelling case for reviving the study of the reason for living through a close analysis of literature and philosophy. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the American and Connecticut Bar Foundations. Since 2002, Kronman has served as Vice President of the Yale University Press Board of Governors.
