By Way of Introduction …

Since my CV is by far the shortest on this roster of contributors, I’ll keep this quick.

I’m an associate at a law firm in Washington, where my work gives me a fair amount of time to ponder the nuances of administrative law. Before that, I clerked on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. While my day job affords me no dearth of research and writing, I still write in my free time, penning the occasional legal analysis (usually for the Weekly Standard online ), and I’m perpetually working on a couple of law review articles on issues of administrative law.

Raised on the Mississippi , I’m forever a proud Hawkeye.

Update:   I posted the following disclaimer on a subsequent post, but I’d like to append it here, too: 

Now’s as good a time as any to stress that nothing I have said or will say on this blog represents the views of my employer or my employer’s clients. Indeed, only an utter moron would think that my firm would send a midlevel associate to be its spokesman on a blog. My thoughts are mine alone, for better or for worse.
