Alex Geisinger, a member of the law school’s inaugural faculty, has been elected to the American Law Institute.
The ALI is the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize and otherwise improve the law. Members must be nominated and elected by their peers. The organization’s distinguished members have the opportunity to influence the development of the law in both existing and emerging areas, to work with other eminent lawyers, judges, and academics, to give back to a profession to which they are deeply dedicated, and to contribute to the public good.
Geisinger's scholarship focuses on the role of legal theory -- including law and economics, behavioralism and expressivism -- in developing international law, environmental law and criminal law. He previously served as associate dean and professor of law at Valparaiso University School of Law. He was a visiting professor at William and Mary Law School and Northwestern University School of Law. Prior to teaching, he practiced with Day, Berry & Howard in Hartford, Conn.
