Introducing Guest Blogger Gerard Magliocca
I’m delighted to introduce Professor Gerard Magliocca, who will be joining us as a guest blogger this month. Gerard is a professor of law at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis. He teaches torts, intellectual property, constitutional law, and admiralty. His current research focuses on how and why constitutional change occurs, with a particular emphasis on the role that political backlash plays in shaping doctrine. In the Fall of 2008, Gerard held the Fulbright Distinguished Research Chair at the Roosevelt Study Center in Middelburg, The Netherlands, where he worked on a project about Senator Huey P. Long and on his forthcoming book about William Jennings Bryan.
Prior to joining the Indiana University — Indianapolis faculty in 2001, Gerard was an attorney at Covington & Burling and clerked for Judge Guido Calabresi on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. He received his B.A. from Stanford and his J.D. from Yale.
