She is a correspondent for "Human Events" magazine.
Honors graduate from Cornell University School of Arts and Sciences (Class of 1984) and received her J.D. from The University of Michigan Law School.
She was an editor of The Michigan Law Review.
Coulter practiced law in New York City.
She worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she handled crime and immigration issues for former Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-MI).
Was a litigator with The Center For Individual Rights in Washington, DC, a far-right-wing law firm that says it is "dedicated to the defense of individual rights with a particular emphasis on freedom of speech, civil rights and the freedom of religion.".
She clerked for the Hon. Pasco Bowman II of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and was an attorney in the Department of Justice Honors program for outstanding law school graduates.
She was named one of the top 100 Public Intellectuals by federal judge Richard A. Posner in 2001. Posner, an appointee of Republican president Ronald Reagan, provoked outrage in the legal community in 1999 when, in an article in Raritan magazine, he contended that "the rule of law is an accidental and dispensable element of legal ideology", and caused another stir in an article that put forth the argument that buying and selling babies on the free market would lead to better outcomes than the present situation of government-regulated adoption.
Writes a syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate.
First came to prominence with the publication of the book "High Crimes and Misdemeanors", which was a best-seller in 1998. That led to her now-familiar appearances as a guest on many conservative television talk shows and her many appearances as a guest or guest host of most of the country's right-wing radio talk shows. Two subsequent books, "Slander" and "Treason", have also been best-sellers.
Was good friends with the late Barbara Olson, a fellow lawyer and author who perished on Sep. 11, 2001, on an airplane that terrorists flew into the Pentagon.
During the Q&A session of her lecture at the University of Arizona in October 2004, two pie-wielding pranksters ran up to her and threw their pies, but she very quickly ran off the stage and the pies missed her. In a column written several months after the incident, she fumed, "Fortunately, liberals not only argue like liberals, they also throw like girls.".
Was a good friend of the late John Kennedy Jr., her George Magazine editor.
Sister of John Jr. and James (Jim) Coulter. Sister-in-law of Pam and Diane. Aunt of Kimberly and Christina.
Daughter of John Vincent Coulter, born ca 1928, attorney for Phelps Dodge, and wife Nell Husbands Martin, born in Paducah, Kentucky, 23 February 1928 and married in Stuyvesant, New York, 30 September 1953.
Is friends with fellow conservative author Laura Ingraham.
The character Ainsley Hayes, from "The West Wing" (1999), is partially based on her.
Moved to Palm Beach, Florida in 2005 where one of her neighbors is bestselling author James Patterson.
