Chai R. FeldblumChai Rachel Feldblum is a Professor of Law and Director of the Federal Legislation Clinic at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., where she coined the phrase and teaches the role of the "legislative lawyer."

Professor Feldblum graduated from Harvard Law School magna cum laude in 1985, clerked for Judge Frank M. Coffin on the First Circuit Court of Appeals and for Justice Harry A. Blackmun on the U.S. Supreme Court, and was Director of Legal Research for the AIDS Action Council from 1987-88.

A leading lawyer, scholar and speaker on gay and lesbian rights, disability rights, and health and welfare issues, Professor Feldblum has been actively involved in federal civil rights and social welfare legislative issues since 1988. Her efforts have included opposing or shaping legislative and regulatory initiatives on gay rights, AIDS, disability, and health care; serving as the lead drafter of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a gay civil rights employment bill, and most recently, helping to develop employment policy changes to advance workplace flexibility as Director of the Sloan Workplace Flexibility Policy Initiative.

Professor Feldblum's latest article is "Rectifying the Tilt: Equality Lessons from Religion, Disability, Sexual Orientation and Transgender," published in the University of Maine Law Review as the Tenth Annual Coffin Lecture. Professor Feldblum received a B.A. from Barnard College where she graduated summa cum laude.
