Professor Freamon teaches Evidence, Professional Responsibility, Jurisprudence, Slavery and Human Trafficking, Prisoners' Rights, Post-Conviction Remedies, and Islamic Jurisprudence. He is Professor of Law Emeritus at Seton Hall Law School and an Adjunct Professor of Law at NYU School of Law. In recent years, he has focussed his research and writing on issues involving slavery and human trafficking in the Muslim world. His most recent publication, "Possessed by the Right Hand: The Problem of Slavery in Islamic Law and Muslim Cultures" (Brill, 2019), is the beginning of a concerted effort on his part seeking to initiate dialogue and induce action to bring about the formal abolition of slavery under the aegis of Islamic law.  .
