Introducing Guest Blogger Jonathan Siegel
I’m delighted to introduce Professor Jonathan Siegel, who will be guest blogging with us this month. Jonathan is my colleague at George Washington University Law School. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Yale Law School. He clerked for Chief Judge Patricia M. Wald of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, after which he served for four years as an attorney on the Appellate Staff of the Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. He became a professor at George Washington Law School in 1995 and was named the Kahan Research Professor in 2008.
Jon’s scholarship focuses on administrative law, federal courts, statutory interpretation, and lawsuits against governments. When not a guest on Concurring Opinions, he blogs at Law Prof on the Loose.
Some of his recent and/or favorite publications include:
