The international publication for which she serves as a series editor, PALGRAVE STUDIES IN LAW, NEUROSCIENCE, AND HUMAN BEHAVIOR, recently published a new book, THE LAW AND ETHICS OF FREEDOM OF THOUGHT (2021).

In 2020, she also published a new edition of a nationally known treatise: GIANNELLI, IMWINKELRIED, ROTH, MORIARTY, & BEETY, SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE (6TH ED. LEXIS/NEXIS) and a new edition of a casebook: JOHN M. CONLEY AND JANE CAMPBELL MORIARTY, SCIENTIFIC AND EXPERT EVIDENCE (3D ED. ASPEN/WOLTERSKLUEWER).

In addition to serving as a professor of law, Moriarty is the Carol Los Mansmann Chair in Faculty Scholarship for the School of Law, is the law school's director of the JD/HCE joint degree program, and serves on the Board of Advisors of the Carl G. Grefenstette Center for Ethics in Science, Technology, and Law at Duquesne University.
