Samuel Issacharoff (born 1954) is an American law professor, whose scholarly work focuses on constitutional law, voting rights and civil procedure.


Issacharoff graduated from Binghamton University in 1975 and Yale Law School in 1983. Issacharoff was born in Argentina in Buenos Aires. He is currently the Bonnie and Richard Reiss Professor of Constitutional Law at New York University School of Law. His students at NYU Law commonly refer to him as "El Gaucho" because he is from Argentina and many of the hypotheticals he uses in class and in his book on Civil Procedure involve cows. He served as a visiting professor at Harvard Law School for the Fall 2008 semester. Prior to joining NYU Law's faculty, he taught at Columbia Law School and The University of Texas School of Law.

In 2017, Issacharof was interviewed by Suraj Patel for Talks on Law on the topic of gerrymandering.[1]

His wife, Cynthia Estlund, is a labor and employment-law professor, also at New York University School of Law.
