Professor Schroeder practiced in corporate finance for 12 years as an associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore and a partner at Milgrim Thomajan & Lee.

Her scholarly interests range from commercial law doctrine to feminist jurisprudential theory. Her current work is on recent amendments to Article 8 of the Uniform Commercial Code and in developing a feminist theory of law and economics incorporating the political philosophy of G.W.F. Hegel and the psychoanalytic theories of Jacques Lacan. Her book on this subject, The Vestal and the Fasces: Hegel, Lacan, Property, and the Feminine , was published in 1998, and her second, The Triumph of Venus: The Erotics of the Market, was published in 2004.

Professor Schroeder teaches Securities Regulation, Corporate Finance, Commercial Law-Payments, Commercial Law-Secured Transactions.

She holds a BA from Williams College and a JD from Stanford Law School.
