Professor Steinzor teaches an environmental survey course, as well as offerings in risk assessment, critical issues in law and science, legal methods, contracts, and an introduction to the administrative system. During the course of her academic career, Professor Steinzor has written extensively on efforts to reinvent environmental regulation in the United States, the use and misuse of science in environmental policy making, and the devolution of legal and administrative authority to the states. Her most recent book, The People's Agents and the Battle to Protect the American Public: Special Interests and Threats to Health, Safety, and the Environment (with Sidney Shapiro) was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2010.

Professor Steinzor is also the president of the Center for Progressive Reform (CPR) (www.progressivereform.org), a think tank comprised of some 52 member scholars from universities across the United States.
