Introducing Guest Blogger Aaron Zelinsky
I am thrilled to introduce my colleague Professor Aaron Zelinsky who, lucky for us at Maryland, is a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Professor Zelinsky will be guest blogging with us this month. In fall 2012, he was an adjunct professor at the Peking University School of Transnational Law.

Aaron holds a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was an Articles Editor of the Yale Law Journal and an Associate Head Writer of the Yale Law Revue, and a B.A. in economics from Yale College. He has taught constitutional law, civil procedure, and foreign relations and national security law.
