(Re)introducing Guest Blogger David Gray

I’m thrilled to welcome back my fabulous colleague David Gray as a guest blogger — just in time as so many criminal procedure decisions have been at the forefront of the news.  Professor Gray is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law where he teaches criminal law, criminal procedure, and jurisprudence.  His scholarly interests are eclectic, but focus on transitional justice, criminal law, criminal procedure, and constitutional theory.  His recent publications have appeared or are forthcoming in the Vanderbilt Law Review, the California Law Review, the Alabama Law Review, the Washington University Law Review, the Stanford Law Review, Law & Contemporary Problems, the Fordham Law Review, and in prominent volumes edited by leading scholars. In addition to his own scholarship, Professor Gray works closely with students to develop and publish their work. Recent work written by or with his students has appeared in the Federal Sentencing Reporter, the Vermont Law Review, the Maryland Law Review, and in edited collections. Consistent with the Law School’s mission as a public educational institution, Professor Gray frequently provides expert commentary for local and national media outlets. Prior to joining the School of Law Faculty, Professor Gray practiced law at Williams & Connolly LLP, was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Duke University School of Law, clerked for The Honorable Chester J. Straub, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and for The Honorable Charles S. Haight, Jr., U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
