Sharlene Boltz is a Professor of Law at Salmon P. Chase College of Law, Northern Kentucky University. A native of Ewing Township, New Jersey, Professor Boltz received her B.A. from Brown University (1982) and her J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School (1985). Prior to teaching, Professor Boltz practiced law as a trial attorney in the Office of General Counsel for the United States Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C., and in private practice in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1991, she began her law teaching career at Chase College of Law in the area of commercial law. In 1997, she became the first African American woman to receive tenure and promotion to full professor in the 108 year history of the law school. Professor Boltz served as the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs from 2000 to 2003 and thus became the first African American to serve as an administrator of the law school. Professor Boltz currently teaches in the commercial law and domestic violence law areas, specializing in the area of threat assessment and behavioral analysis of abusive and controlling behavior. Her scholarship is focused on the use of threat assessment methodologies by law enforcement to prevent domestic violence homicide. Professor Boltz volunteers with the Northern Kentucky Women's Crisis Center and serves on the Partnership Against Trafficking of Humans task force which provides training and other support services. In April 2011, she completed her training with Gavin DeBecker & Associates' Advanced Threat Assessment and Case Management Academy, and in June 2012, she will graduate from the FBI Citizen's Academy.
