What excites you most about joining the UCI Law faculty?
I am very excited to join both the terrific law faculty and the wonderful interdisciplinary community at UCI, and I would like to contribute to realizing the ambitions of a truly unique new law school.
Describe your scholarship, or a favorite pro bono or service project.
Much of my scholarship focuses on the processes and people that are behind legal globalization. A key question is whether these processes are strengthening the position of law and lawyers in the governance of the state and the economy in countries where the law has not traditionally played a strong role. Another key topic for investigation is how the role of law and lawyers relates to contested domestic and transnational power arrangements.
What would you like to accomplish at UCI Law?
I look forward to returning to teaching after a long period of administration, and I look forward very much to being part of a vibrant interdisciplinary community.
