Ann C. Juliano

Professor of Law


Ann Juliano joined the Law School faculty in 1998. Her teaching and scholarship focus on employment law, employment discrimination, harassment, Federal Indian law and gender and the law issues. Her articles have appeared in the Cornell Law Review, Boston University Law Review, Georgia Law Review, St. Louis University Law Review and Tulsa Law Review. Juliano contributed a book chapter to the Indian Law edition of the Stories series, explaining the backstory behind the important Supreme Court cases in substantive areas.

Juliano is committed to bringing her scholarship interests to the real world by creating anti-discrimination training courses, lecturing in bar exam preparation courses, and speaking to high school students about consent and Title IX. She presents on discrimination issues surrounding dress codes to anyone who will listen.

Prior to joining the Villanova faculty, Juliano was a trial attorney with the United States Department of Justice, Environmental and Natural Resources Division, where she worked in the Indian Resources Section, and later as special assistant to Assistant Attorney General Lois J. Schiffer. Prior to that, she was a law clerk to the Honorable Stephanie K. Seymour of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and later to the Honorable Raymond J. Pettine of the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island.

Juliano graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and earned her law degree, cum laude, from Cornell Law School where she was editor-in-chief of the Cornell Law Review. She currently serves as the faculty advisor for the Villanova Law Review.
