Welcome to the Civil Rights Prof Blog
Welcome to the Civil Rights Prof Blog. The focus of this blog is on the law of Section 1983 - especially constitutional torts litigation. My goal for this blog is to provide information about especially noteworthy cases, new scholarship, and conferences of interest to academics, practitioners, and all those interested in the complex, fascinating law of Section 1983.
I am an assistant professor of law at American University's Washington College of Law, teaching Constitutional Law, Advanced Constitutional Law: Constitutional Theory, Jurisprudence, Torts, and Government Liability in Constitutional Litigation. I am currently working on a book manuscript that examines the history of Section 1983, from its origins in the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 to the contemporary post-Rehnquist era. You can read more about my research interests on my faculty profile page: http://www.wcl.american.edu/faculty/dodd/
Please feel free to contact me with suggestions. I would greatly appreciate receiving any material that you think might be of interest to readers of this blog.
