research overview

  • I study how lawyers and judges strive to claim meaning through the reading and writing of authoritative texts, given the limits of the languages and materials before them. In teaching, I hope to create excitement for the imaginative and expressive possibilities of a life in the law, and to help students give meaning to their legal experience and that of others.


  • Narrative theory, rhetoric theory, learning theory, typography, beverages
