Michael Boucai teaches courses relating to Family Law, Criminal Law, and Law & Sexuality at SUNY Buffalo Law School. His scholarship focuses on the regulation of sexuality and other forms of intimacy through legal, political, moral, and social norms.

Professor Boucai's most recent article, “Sexual Liberty and Same-Sex Marriage: An Argument from Bisexuality,” appeared in the Spring 2012 issue of The San Diego Law Review. "Glorious Precedents," a study of the first same-sex marriage cases from the early 1970s, is forthcoming in The Yale Journal of Law & the Humanities. Boucai's other writings may be found in the University of Miami Law Review, the National Black Law Journal, the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law, and the Journal of Social History.
