Introducing Guest Blogger Michael Kang
Lucky for us, Professor Michael Kang has agreed to return as a guest blogger for the month. Last summer, Professor Kang, Associate Professor of Law at Emory University School of Law, wrote illuminating posts on a variety of issues involving election law, one of his areas of expertise, and we are excited to hear more from him.
Professor Kang teaches and writes about election law, law and democratic governance, and Business Associations. He taught at Harvard Law School as a Visiting Associate Professor of Law during the Spring of 2009 and at Cornell Law School as a Visiting Professor of Law during the Spring of 2008. He has co-edited a book with Heather Gerken and Guy-Uriel Charles entitled Race, Reform, and Regulation of the Electoral Process (forthcoming Cambridge University Press 2010).
Professor Kang has written important (and highly recommended) pieces on elections, race, and democratic contestation, including:
The Partisan Price of Justice: An Empirical Analysis of Campaign Contributions and Judicial Decisions, 86 N.Y.U. L. Rev. (forthcoming 2011) (with Joanna M. Shepherd)
Sore Loser Laws and Democratic Contestation, 99 Geo. L. J. (forthcoming 2011)
Voting as Veto, 108 Mich. L. Rev. 1221 (2010)
Race and Democratic Contestation, 117 Yale L.J. 734 (2008).
