Introducing Guest Blogger Matt Lister
I am delighted to introduce Matt Lister who will be guest blogging with us this month. Many of us have gotten to know Professor Lister through his superb comments on our blog, and we are thrilled to have him aboard. Professor Lister is currently a visiting assistant professor at Villanova University School of Law. Before starting at Villanova, he was a Sharswood Fellow in Law and Philosophy at Penn Law and clerked on the U.S. Court of International Trade for (now Chief) Judge Donald C. Pogue. He earned his JD and PhD (in Philosophy) from Penn. Before attending Penn, he was a Peace Corps volunteer in Russia. Professor Lister writes on legal and political philosophy, immigration law, and international law, including international economic law, and has a side interest in criminal law theory.
Some of his recent articles include:
