Introducing Guest Blogger Anita Krishnakumar
I’m delighted to introduce Professor Anita S. Krishnakumar (St. John’s School of Law), who will be joining us for a reprise guest visit for the next month.
Anita teaches Legislation, Introduction to Law, and Trusts and Estates. She received her J.D. from Yale University, and her B.A. from the Stanford University. Before joining the St. John’s faculty in 2006, she visited at Touro Law School from 2004-06. Prior to entering law teaching, she worked as an associate in the appellate litigation group at Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw, and as a litigation associate at Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen, & Hamilton. Before that, she was as a law clerk for Jose A. Cabranes of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
In 2009, she received a Dean’s Teaching Award, based on student evaluations.
Anita’s current research focuses on legislative solutions to legislative process dysfunctions, recent trends in the Supreme Court’s statutory interpretation cases, judicial treatment of political parties, and election law.
Her publications include:
* The Hidden Legacy of Holy Trinity Church: The Unique National Institution Canon, 51 William & Mary L. Rev. (forthcoming 2009)
