It is my pleasure to introduce Professor June Carbone, who will be blogging with us this month. June joined the University of Minnesota Law School faculty in June 2013 as the inaugural holder of the Robina Chair in Law, Science and Technology. Before her current position at Minnesota, she was the Edward A. Smith/Missouri Chair of Law, the Constitution and Society at the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC). And prior to that, she was a professor at Santa Clara University (SCU) School of Law, where she served as associate dean for faculty development from 2000-2006 and from 2001-03 as the Presidential Professor of Ethics and the Common Good. She is an expert in numerous areas of the law, ranging from family law to property to bioethics, and she also has taught contracts, remedies, financial institutions, civil procedure, and feminist jurisprudence.
In addition to countless law review articles, June is the co-author of a leading family law casebook, the author of the ground-breaking From Partners to Parents, and, with yours truly, the co-author of Red Families v. Blue Families and Marriage Markets. Brian Leiter recently listed her as the 6th most frequently cited family law scholar from 2010-2014.
