Introducing Guest Blogger Professor Darren Hutchinson
I am delighted to introduce Professor Darren Hutchinson, who will be guest blogging with us this month. Professor Hutchinson’s guest stint is particularly exciting for me as we clerked together for the late Honorable Mary Johnson Lowe, a former United States District Judge in the Southern District of New York. Professor Hutchinson teaches Constitutional Law, Equitable Remedies and seminars in Critical Race Theory, Law and Social Change, and Equal Protection Theory at the American University, Washington College of Law. He received a B.A., cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania and a J.D. from Yale Law School. Before law teaching, Professor Hutchinson practiced commercial litigation at Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen and Hamilton in New York City.
Professor Hutchinson has written extensively on issues related to Constitutional Law, Critical Race Theory, Law and Sexuality, and social identity theory. He is incredibly prolific. His numerous publications have appeared in the Cornell Law Review, Washington University Law Review, UCLA Law Review, Illinois Law Review, Tulane Law Review, Michigan Journal of Race and Law, University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law, and Journal of Law and Inequality. Professor Hutchinson also authors Dissenting Justice — a blog related to law and politics.
Professor Hutchinson has delivered lectures at numerous universities, including Yale, Stanford, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Michigan, the University of California at Berkeley, Cornell, Georgetown, and Boston University. During the Fall of 1999, Professor Hutchinson was a Visiting Scholar at Yale Law School, and during the Spring of 2002 he was a Visiting Professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Before becoming a member of the American University faculty, Professor Hutchinson was an Associate Professor at Southern Methodist University School of Law.
