Eunice Park

Visiting Professor of Law

Background:

Eunice Park has been teaching legal research, writing and analysis since 2000.  She has also taught interviewing, counseling, and negotiation classes, and advanced scholarly writing seminars.  Professor Park enjoys considering both the critical analysis and art of language intrinsic to effective legal communication.  

Professor Park’s research interests are both pedagogical and doctrinal.  Her pedagogical scholarship has focused on incorporating practical skills into the curriculum, including cultural competence under ABA Standard 302, and teaching the value of maintaining gender-neutrality in legal writing and objectivity as effective advocacy tools.  Professor Park’s doctrinal scholarship has focused on the tension between the Fourth Amendment and privacy rights in digital data, including digital device searches at the border, and the third-party data created by utilizing private genomic testing services and smart technology.  Her article on the tension between the citizen’s right to privacy and law enforcement’s need to conduct a reasonable search in the context of the cell phone incident to a lawful custodial arrest preceded Riley v. California,134 S.Ct. 2473 (2014), and was cited in the Petition for Writ of Certiorari to the United States Supreme Court.  Professor Park’s most recent article, Objects, Places and Cyber-Spaces Post-Carpenter:  Extending the Third-Party Doctrine Beyond CSLI:  A Consideration of IoT and DNA, was published by the Yale Journal of Law and Technology.

In addition to teaching in the classroom, Professor Park enjoys coaching students for advocacy competitions.  In 2016, her team won the 21st Annual National Juvenile Moot Court Competition.  She was a student instructor of legal writing while at the University of Michigan and taught at Western State College of Law since 2007, serving as Assistant Director of the Legal Writing and Research program.
