Introducing Guest Blogger Meredith Render
I’m excited to introduce Meredith Render, who is an Associate Professor of Law at University of Alabama School of Law. Professor Render and I taught together when she was visiting at Maryland–she is an exciting scholar and teacher who writes about property, civil Rights, and gender and the law. Her scholarship explores a variety of issues related to the nature of property rights and the constitutive role of formal and informal rules. Professor Render’s article The Law of the Body, is forthcoming in the Emory Law Journal and her article Gender Rules was selected for presentation at Yale Law School as part of the Yale /Stanford Junior Faculty Forum. Professor Render also has book chapters forthcoming in books published by the University of Alabama Press and Cambridge University Press. Professor Render joined the Alabama faculty in 2007. Prior to joining the faculty, she was a teaching fellow at Stanford Law School and a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland. Professor Render also clerked for the Honorable Fortunato Benavides of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and for the Honorable George W. Lindberg of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Professor Render received her JD from Georgetown University Law Center.
