Greetings! Welcome to Constitutional Law Professor Blog - - - like my co-bloggers, I am hoping this will be a useful site to discuss all matters of Constitutional Law, with an emphasis on pedagogy, as well as scholarship and current events.
I'm a Professor of Law and University Distinguished Professor at the City University of New York School of Law. I have taught various constitutional law courses since coming to CUNY in 1990, with a current focus on our "rights" course (entitled Liberty, Equality and Due Process) and our First Amendment course, as well as teaching Sexuality and Law with a heavy constitutional component, and often Law and Family Relations, a required course also with a heavy constitutional component. Given these interests, I'll generally be focusing on rights rather than structures. However, I have an intense interest in judicial review, both in the United States and other nations; one of my recent articles is Judicial Review and Sexual Freedom, 29 U. Haw. L. Rev. 1 (2007).
I also have an avid interest in non-SCOTUS constitutional law litigation. As a legal services attorney, I had the opportunity to raise many constitutional law issues and think all attorneys should have a mastery of constitutional law possibilities. I also have an interest in how constitutional law is being taught outside of the law school context. I've a few regular features planned that I'll be sharing soon.
