Biography

Larry Schwartztol is the inaugural executive director of the Criminal Justice Policy Program at Harvard Law School. Larry joined the Criminal Justice Policy Program after spending nearly eight years as an attorney with the national office of the ACLU. During that time, he engaged in litigation and other advocacy in support of the ACLU’s racial justice docket. His litigation included cases aimed at the “school-to-prison pipeline”–policies that inappropriately expose schoolchildren to the criminal justice system. He also played a lead role in shaping the economic justice dimension of the organization’s racial justice work. In addition, Larry litigated national security cases, including matters involving foreign intelligence surveillance, ideological exclusion of foreign scholars, and the government’s search authority at airports and the U.S. border.

Before his time at the ACLU, Larry was a Liman Fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. He clerked for Judge Harry T. Edwards of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Larry graduated from Yale Law School and received his B.A. from the University of Chicago.
