Visiting Research Fellow + Professor of Legal Writing, Lund University

I graduated magna cum laude from Pomona College with a degree in anthropology and received my law degree from The George Washington University Law School (GW Law), where I am now a Professor of Legal Research and Writing. I have been a member of the GW Law faculty since 2009, teaching courses in legal communication and rhetoric and directing the law school writing center.

My scholarship interests are in the fields of legal writing and pedagogy, feminist legal theory, and critical animal studies. I am most recently a contributor to "Feminist Judgments: Rewritten Opinions of the United States Supreme Court" (Cambridge University Press 2016). My law review article Mylk: The Disruptive Possibilities of Plant Milk, is forthcoming in 2018.

I am currently a visiting scholar at the Critical Animal Studies Network at Lund University (Sweden), where I am working on a number of articles and teaching courses that focus on the intersection of law, rhetoric, sociology, and politics analyzed through a feminist and animal rights lens.
