I grew up in Durham NC and studied Philosophy at the University of North Carolina. After attending law school at Harvard and clerking for the Honorable Louis F Oberdorfer, I worked for 17 years as a litigator at two Washington DC law firms. I moved to the UK in 1999, completed a Masters degree at UCL in 2001, and since then have taught law at the University of Warwick. I have published papers in most of the leading law journals in the UK, including the MLR, the LQR, and the OJLS. I am married with three daughters.
