Welcoming Back Guest Blogger Michael Kang
I am delighted to welcome back Professor Michael Kang as a guest blogger for the month. Last summer, Professor Kang, Professor of Law at Emory University School of Law, wrote illuminating posts on election law, one of his areas of expertise, and many other topics and we are excited to have him back. Professor Kang has had a busy year since we last heard from him. He served as the Associate Dean of Research for the then-Interim and now permanent Dean of Emory Law School Robert Schapiro (who also is a CoOp guest).
Professor Kang teaches and writes about election law, law and democratic governance, and Business Associations. He taught at Harvard Law School as a Visiting Associate Professor of Law during the Spring of 2009 and at Cornell Law School as a Visiting Professor of Law during the Spring of 2008. He has co-edited a book with Heather Gerken and Guy-Uriel Charles entitled Race, Reform, and Regulation of the Electoral Process (Cambridge University Press 2010). He is currently working on articles for the Indiana Law Journal and Harvard Law Review Online Forum.
Professor Kang has written important (and highly recommended) pieces on elections, race, and democratic contestation, including:
The End of Campaign Finance Law, 98 Va. L. Rev. (2012).
The Partisan Price of Justice: An Empirical Analysis of Campaign Contributions and Judicial Decisions, 86 N.Y.U. L. Rev. (2011) (with Joanna M. Shepherd)
Sore Loser Laws and Democratic Contestation, 99 Geo. L. J. (2011)
Voting as Veto, 108 Mich. L. Rev. 1221 (2010)
Race and Democratic Contestation, 117 Yale L.J. 734 (2008).
