Introducing Guest Blogger David Gray
I am delighted to welcome back my colleague Professor David Gray who will be guest blogging with us this month. Professor Gray is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Maryland School of Law, where he teaches criminal law, criminal procedure, and seminars in jurisprudence and transitional justice. Immediately before joining Maryland, he spent a few years at Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C., where most of his time was spent on white collar, criminal, professional liability, appellate, and plaintiffs’ civil rights litigation. Before his tenure at W & C, he was, in reverse chronological order, a Visiting Assistant Professor at Duke Law, clerk to The Hon. Chester J. Straub, and clerk to The Hon. Charles S. Haight, Jr. He received a JD Order of the Coif from the New York University School of Law, his MA and PhD in Philosophy from Northwestern University, and his BA from The University of Virginia.
Professor Gray writes mainly on jurisprudential issues core to transitional justice debates, but he also dabbles in constitutional theory and international law. His current work focuses on criminal law theory, reparations and prosecutorial ethics.
His recent publications include:
Beyond Experience: Getting Retributive Justice Right, 99 California Law Review (forthcoming 2011) (with Dan Markel and Chad Flanders).
