Jane Campbell Moriarty is the Carol Los Mansmann chair in faculty scholarship and professor of law at Duquesne University School of Law. Her scholarship focuses on scientific evidence, neuroscience and law, and professional responsibility. Among her publications are a casebook, Scientific and Expert Evidence (Aspen, 2007, 2d ed. 2011)(with John M. Conley), a treatise, Giannelli, Imwinkelried, Roth & Moriarity, Scientific Evidence (5th ed., 2013)(with annual supplements), a three-volume edited series, The Role of Mental Illness in Criminal Trials:Insanity & Mental Incompetence (three volumes in the Constitutional Controversies series)(Routledge Press, 2001), and a two-volume practitioner treatise, Psychological and Scientific Evidence in Criminal Trials, (West, 1996)(annual supps.,1997-2006).

Moriarty has written several articles about behavioral and forensic science evidence, the Salem witchcraft trials, and violence against women.  In the last few years, much of her work has involved the burgeoning field of neuroscience and law.  She is the author and co-author of peer reviewed articles on neuroscience and law and a chapter on neuroscience lie detection.  She is currently working on a book for NYU Press, entitled Are You Lying Now? Neurotechnology and Law (2016) and is developing an international series on neuroscience, law, and human behavior with colleagues. Moriarty is a frequent speaker on scientific evidence and neuroscience evidence and served as president of the Evidence Section of the Association of American Law Schools. 

During her career, she was named Professor of the Year (Akron Law) and awarded the Excellence in Teaching award (Duquesne Law).  A contributor to Black’s Law Dictionary, Moriarty has been included in Who’s Who in America, and has received awards for her scholarship.  She was a visiting professor at both Case Western University School of Law and the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

Moriarty received a B.A. from Boston College, summa cum laude, where she was awarded the Bapst Philosophy Medal and elected to Phi Beta Kappa.  She graduated, cum laude, from Boston College Law School. She served as a law clerk to the Superior Court of Massachusetts and to Ralph J. Cappy, Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.  In 2010, she attended Neuroscience Bootcamp at the University of Pennsylvania Center for Neuroscience and Society.
