Introducing Guest Blogger Michael Abramowicz
I’m very pleased to introduce Michael Abramowicz, who will be visiting with us for the next month. Michael is my colleague at George Washington University Law School. He graduated summa cum laude from Amherst College, where he majored in economics and served as editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper. After spending a year as a research assistant at the Federal Reserve Board, he attended Yale Law School, where he served as executive editor of the Yale Law Journal and as a co-director of the landlord tenant clinic. After law school, he clerked for the Honorable Patrick E. Higginbotham of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Before coming to GW, Michael served for a year as a visiting assistant professor at Northwestern University School of Law, and three years as an assistant and then associate professor at George Mason University School of Law. He teaches and does research in areas including intellectual property, civil procedure, administrative law, insurance law, and corporate law. His work has been published in the California Law Review, Columbia Law Review, Iowa Law Review, Michigan Law Review, Stanford Law Review, UCLA Law Review, University of Chicago Law Review, Vanderbilt Law Review, Yale Journal on Regulation, and Yale Law Journal, among others.
