I am a graduate of Yale College and Harvard Law School. After serving as an Articles Editor for the Harvard Law Review, I clerked on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and practiced law in Boston, where I spent most of my time on complex litigation and appeals.
I currently am a tenured professor at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. I’ve also had academic appointments at the University of Chicago Law School, the University of Minnesota Law School, and the Northwestern School of Law. My scholarship has appeared in the Harvard Law Review, the University of Illinois Law Review, the Virginia Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, the Texas Law Review, the Northwestern University Law Review, the Minnesota Law Review, The University of Chicago Law Review, and the UCLA Law Review, the Virginia Journal of International Law, and the William & Mary Law Review, among many other academic journals. One of my articles received a national academic award.
I have testified before Congress and state legislatures concerning the constitutionality of pending legislation, and have given advice to all branches of state governments, including a former governor, legislators, and attorneys-general. I also make frequent public appearances in a wide array of fora and media, including newspapers and television.
