Visiting Assistant Professor

Professor Arthur Zverev specializes in the areas of law and politics. Prior to joining Woodbury, his professional legal experience focused on conducting legal research, providing analysis on pending legislation, and drafting motions and appellate briefs for various government agencies. He has previously worked for the Office of the San Diego Public Defender, the Office of the United States Trustee, and the Federal Defenders of San Diego, where he specialized in complex criminal cases, including murder, robbery, fraud, and various drug offenses. His teaching experience includes classes on white-collar crime, criminal procedure, and criminal law at California State University, Northridge (CSUN).
Prof. Zverev’s research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of American legal history, criminal law, litigation, constitutional law, and regulation of vice. His research projects use history and current legal precedents to reveal how the law regulates the boundaries between various issues and investigates how social and legal concepts and categories change over time.
He received his B.A. in Sociology from CSUN and a J.D. from California Western School of Law, where he was a member of the moot court team. He has been awarded the Wiley W. Manuel Certificate for Pro Bono Service by the California Lawyers Association and is also a member of the Legal Writing Institute.
