About Me

I am Assistant Professor of Lawyering at Lewis and Clark Law School. I have written on constitutional law, impeachment and racism, the intersection of human rights and civil rights, the law of armed conflict, and humanitarian law and policy. My previous faculty positions were at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, Washington and Lee University School of Law, and American University Washington College of Law. I have taught a course on national security legislation and an upper level writing course centered on refugee and asylum law. Prior to teaching, I served as investigative counsel with the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. I worked with Human Rights Watch and other humanitarian and civil rights non-profits. I began my career in private practice with large law firms.
