Jotwell Jurisprudence



I am currently the Dudley W. Woodbridge Professor of Law at the College of William and Mary.

Most of my research falls into four main areas:

1) civil procedure and the conflict of laws, especially the Erie doctrine and its intersection with horizontal choice of law,


2) philosophy of law,


3) the examination of constitutional law in the light of Lockean social contract theory, and


4) Nietzsche.


But I have written in other areas, including copyright.
