Theodore M. “Ted” Shaw [joined] the UNC School of Law July 1, 2014, as the first Julius L. Chambers Distinguished Professor of Law and as director of the UNC Center for Civil Rights. The position had been open since founding director Julius L. Chambers, who died [in 2013], stepped down in 2010.

Previously Shaw served as director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF), the legal arm of the civil rights movement founded by Thurgood Marshall, who later became an associate justice of the Supreme Court. Chambers was LDF’s third director; Shaw was the fifth, serving from 2004 to 2008. Shaw joined the LDF in 1982 to litigate school desegregation, voting and other civil rights cases.

Shaw, a graduate of Wesleyan University and Columbia Law School, began his career as a trial attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. He joined the LDF in 1982, litigating at the trial and appellate levels, including the Supreme Court, and established LDF’s Western Regional Office in Los Angeles. Shaw was counsel for African American students in the University of Michigan undergraduate affirmative action admissions case heard by the Supreme Court in 2003. He also played a key role in initiating the review of Michigan Law School’s admissions policies and served on committees that adopted the plan that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.  (
