Introducing Guest Blogger Shruti Rana
I am delighted to introduce my colleague Shruti Rana who will be guest blogging with us this month while she teaches in China. Professor Rana is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Law School, where she currently teaches Contracts and Comparative Commercial Law. In December 2008, she will be a visiting professor at the Central University of Economics and Finance in Beijing, China. She received her J.D. from Columbia Law School, an M.Sc. in International Relations from the London School of Economics, and her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to joining the University of Maryland, she was a Social Affairs Officer at the United Nations and practiced commercial and administrative law at Williams & Connolly LLP in Washington, D.C., and Quinn Emanuel LLP and Bingham McCutchen LLP in San Francisco, CA. She also clerked for the Hon. James R. Browning at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Her research focuses on the intersection of administrative law and immigration policy, comparative approaches to credit regulation, and corporate accountability.
Some of Professor Rana’s publications include:
