Introducing Guest Blogger Alex Kreit
I am excited to introduce my colleague, Alex Kreit, as a guest blogger with us this month. Alex is an assistant professor and director of the Center for Law and Social Justice at Thomas Jefferson School of Law where he teaches Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure and Property. This spring, he will be teaching a course on Controlled Substances law.
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, Alex clerked for the Honorable M. Blane Michael on the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. He then worked as an associate at Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco where his practice focused on securities and appellate litigation. While at Morrison, he co-authored an amicus curiae brief for Students for Sensible Drug Policy in the U.S. Supreme Court case Morse v. Frederick (better known as the “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” student free speech case). Alex’s articles have appeared in the American University Law Review (Vicarious Criminal Liability and the Constitutional Dimensions of Pinkerton), the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy (Why Is Congress Still Regulating Noncommercial Activity?), the University of Chicago Legal Forum (forthcoming 2010), and the William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal (Making Sense of Facial and As-Applied Challenges) (forthcoming 2010). He is actively involved in the community and currently serves as Chair of the City of San Diego’s Medical Marijuana Task Force and as a member of the board of the San Diego Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society.
