Randy J. Kozel joined the Law School faculty in 2011 and served as a Visiting Professor at the London Law Centre in 2013. He teaches and researches in fields including constitutional law, federal courts, and contract law, with a particular focus on the role of precedent in legal decisionmaking. He has presented his work at conferences nationally and internationally. He also serves as an advisor to Yale Law School's China Law Center in connection with its project on precedent and judicial reasoning. Professor Kozel’s article, “Settled Versus Right: Constitutional Method and the Path of Precedent,” was recently published in the Texas Law Review and examines the relationship between interpretive theory and the strength of judicial precedent. In “The Scope of Precedent,” which is forthcoming in the Michigan Law Review, Professor Kozel extends this analysis to the process for defining a judicial decision’s scope of applicability for future cases. And in “Original Meaning and the Precedent Fallback,” which is forthcoming in the Vanderbilt Law Review, he focuses on the role of precedent within the originalist school of constitutional interpretation. Professor Kozel received his J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School, where he was the Articles Committee Chair of the Harvard Law Review. He served as a law clerk for Justice Anthony M. Kennedy at the U.S. Supreme Court, and for Judge Alex Kozinski at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He has also practiced as a litigator with a large law firm and as Special Counsel to the General Counsel at General Electric Company. /assets/71661/original/kozel.jpgContracts Freedom of Speech Legal Change Seminar<b>Selected Publications</b> <a href=""><i>The Scope of Precedent,</i></a> 113 Michigan Law Review (forthcoming) <i>Original Meaning and the Precedent Fallback,</i> 65 Vanderbilt Law Review (forthcoming) <a href=""><i>Institutional Autonomy and Constitutional Structure,</i></a> 112 Michigan Law Review 101 (2014) <a href=""><i>Settled Versus Right: Constitutional Method and the Path of Precedent</i></a>, 91 Texas Law Review 1843 (2013).
