Noah started his teaching career at NYU Law School — one week before 9/11. Early in his career he focused his teaching on law and religion and international law. For the last decade-plus his core teaching focus has been constitutional law, which he has taught for many years at Harvard, in particular the First Amendment, which he teaches as its own course that covers free expression and religious liberty. Simultaneously, Noah also always teaches at least one class that closely tracks his writing and research, such as his course on Power & Ethics.
Noah frequently co-teaches classes with distinguished scholars and practitioners from a range of backgrounds. He has taught Race, Religion and the Law alongside Prof. John Jackson, now provost of the University of Pennsylvania (cross listed in African American studies); The Nature of Evidence with renowned mathematician Prof. Barry Mazur; Science, State, Society with preeminent historian of science Prof. Peter Galison (cross listed in history of science); Social Media and the Law with Meta content policy chief Monica Bickert; and Law and the Human with Prof. Joseph Koerner, winner of the Mellon Humanities Medal (cross-listed in art history).
Every term since 2012, Noah has also taught a seminar-style reading group on Jewish Law and Legal Theory. The theme changes each term. Subjects have included the Law of Angels, the Law of Literature, the Law of Natural Disaster, the Law of Magic, Rabbinic Authority, and many more.
