Introducing Guest Blogger Erik Lillquist
I am delighted to introduce Professor Erik Lillquist, who will be guest blogging with us over the next month.
Erik is an associate dean and professor at Seton Hall Law School. He teaches in the areas of criminal law and procedure, evidence, contracts, and electronic commerce. His current research interests include the interaction between theories of human-decision making and the legal process, and understanding the implications of biology, medicine and psychology for law.
Erik received his B.S. in Biology and B.A. in History from Stanford University in 1989, and his J.D. from the University of Virginia in 1995. At Virginia, he was elected to the Order of the Coif and was the Editor-in-Chief of the Virginia Law Review.
After law school, Erik clerked for the Honorable John M. Walker, Jr. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
