Introducing Guest Blogger Timothy Zick
I’m very pleased to announce that Professor Timothy Zick (St. John’s School of Law) will be guest blogging with us for the next month.
Tim graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center in 1992, where he received the Francis E. Lucey, S.J., award for graduating first in his class. While at Georgetown, he was a Notes & Comments editor of the Georgetown Law Journal.
Following law school, Tim was an associate with the law firms of Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C., and Foley Hoag in Boston. He clerked for the Honorable Levin H. Campbell of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Tim also served as an attorney in the Federal Programs Branch of the United States Department of Justice. Tim joined the St. John’s University School of Law faculty in 2002, and was voted Professor of the Year by the students in 2006. Tim’s scholarship focuses primarily on federalism and free speech. In his most recent publications, Tim examines the intersection between “place” and expressive liberties. He recently completed a book manuscript about place and public expression, tentatively entitled The People Out of Doors: The First Amendment, the Expressive Topography, and the Preservation of Public Liberties.
