CrimProf Randy Barnett joins the Georgetown Law faculty this fall as the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory after serving as a visiting professor.
Most recently, he was the Austin B. Fletcher Professor at the Boston University School of Law, where he taught constitutional law, contracts and cyber law, as well as torts, criminal law, evidence, agency and partnership and jurisprudence.
Barnett graduated from Northwestern University and Harvard Law School and later served as a visiting professor at each of his alma maters. He was a prosecutor in the Cook County State’s Attorney's Office in Chicago, and in 2004, argued the medical marijuana case of Gonzales v. Raich in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Barnett has produced more than 80 articles and reviews, as well as seven books, including “Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty" (Princeton, 2004), "Contract Cases and Doctrine" (Aspen, 3rd ed. 2003), and "The Structure of Liberty: Justice and the Rule of Law" (Oxford, 1998).
