John F. Manning (born 1961) is an American educator and lawyer. Manning is currently the Morgan and Helen Chu Dean and Professor of Harvard Law School.[1]


Manning graduated from Harvard College in 1982 and lived in Thayer Hall during his freshman year. He then graduated from Harvard Law School in 1985.[2] Following law school, he served as a law clerk to Judge Robert H. Bork at the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He then served as a law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia for the Supreme Court's 1988 term.[3] Manning also worked two stints at the Justice Department's prestigious Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) and in the Solicitor General's office.[4]

Manning was brought to Harvard Law School by Dean Elena Kagan to help shore up Harvard Law School's expertise in public law; he is an expert in administrative law and a constitutional scholar of textualism.[5] Manning's hiring, along with that of Jack Goldsmith, and Adrian Vermeule, has "helped assuage complaints that Harvard marginalized conservative views."[5] Manning is also an expert on separation of powers issues.[6][7] On July 23, 2012, the Supreme Court appointed Manning amicus curiae, in Sebelius v. Auburn Regional Medical Center. He argued the case on December 4, 2012.[8].

On April 30, 2013, Manning was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.[9]

On January 5, 2017, Martha Minow, then-dean at Harvard Law School, announced that she would be stepping down as dean at the end of the academic year.[10] On June 1, 2017, Manning was formally announced as the law school's next Dean, beginning on July 1, 2017.[11] Manning, a textualist legal scholar, whose selection drew criticism from some progressive and liberal groups,[12] has stated that his academic background "will not affect how he leads the Law School."[13]
