I am pleased to welcome Christine Kexel Chabot, who will be guest blogging during the month of July. Christine is a lecturer at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where she has taught since 2010.
Christine’s empirical research focuses on judicial decision-making. For example, a recent Hastings Law Journal article analyzes the Senate’s ability to constrain presidents’ choices of Supreme Court nominees over an extended period. Her working paper, Schooling the Supreme Court, makes use of a unique period when Justices who attended law school sat with Justices who entered the profession by reading the law alone.
Before coming to Loyola – Chicago, Christine practiced in the Ann Arbor and Chicago offices of leading national law firms and clerked for the Hon. Jane R. Roth of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Her interest in judicial decision-making stems from her appellate and telecommunications litigation experience.
