Linda A. Shashoua is a member of the Legal Writing Faculty, and a full-time Assistant Prosecutor with the Office of the Camden County Prosecutor, where she is the Deputy Chief of the Motions and Appeals Unit.  She received her B.A. in English and Philosophy from Rutgers-New Brunswick, and her J.D. from New York University School of Law.
