Introducing Guest Blogger Jack Chin
I’m very happy to announce that Professor Gabriel (Jack) Chin will be joining us as a guest blogger this month.
Jack is the Chester H. Smith Professor of Law at the University of Arizona, James E. Rogers College of Law. He received a J.D. from Michigan and an LL.M. from Yale, and formerly taught at the University of Cincinnati and Western New England College School of Law (and visited at NYU). For the past several years, he has worked with students to repeal Jim Crow laws still on the books; in 2003, they persuaded the Ohio legislature to ratify the Fourteenth Amendment.
His current research interests include race, voting rights and criminal law; they intersect in such projects as his service as reporter to NCCUSL’s Uniform Act on Collateral Consequences of Criminal Conviction
His publications include:
* The Tyranny of the Minority: Jim Crow and the Counter-Majoritarian Difficulty, 43 Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review (forthcoming 2008) (with Randy Wagner)
* Reconstruction, Felon Disenfranchisement and the Right to Vote: Did the Fifteenth Amendment Repeal Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment?, 92 Georgetown Law Journal 259 (2004)
