Professor Tewari teaches contract and business law at Widener University Delaware Law School through an interdisciplinary lens; she is presently the H. Albert Young Fellow in Constitutional Law. Her legal scholarship centers on narrative justice: incorporating marginalized perspectives into the study and practice of contract and business law. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University School of the Arts, a law degree from Fordham Law School, and a Bachelor of Arts from Cornell University. Tewari’s short stories and poetry have been published in literary magazines such as Granta, New England Review, The Southern Review, and nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
Her most recent publications include Local Governance, Pay Equity, and the Pandemic [84 ALB. L. R. (2022)], The Ethics of Gender Narratives for U.S. Corporate Boards [16 N.Y.U. J. L. & B. 221 (2019)], and Formality and Geopolitics, two sociopolitical poems in Michigan Quarterly Review.
Tewari founded the Narrative Justice Project, with non-profit status through the New York Foundation for the Arts, to support collaboration between artists and lawyers for dialogue vital to justice and humanity.
She consults and speaks on numerous topics related to the corporate social responsibility space, including feminist lawyering, narrative justice, inclusivity on corporate boards, and equal pay as a human right.
What inspires me to teach?
A law degree is a privilege that carries an obligation to society. I want my students to love their studies here at Delaware Law School and to graduate with the understanding and confidence that they hold immense power through not only their knowledge and skills, but also through their empathy and passion for humanity.
