Professor Staszewski was a trial attorney in the Federal Programs Branch of the Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice before joining the Michigan State University College of Law faculty in 2001. He served as Editor in Chief of the Vanderbilt Law Review during law school and was subsequently elected to the Order of the Coif. Upon graduation, he clerked for the Honorable Fortunato P. Benavides of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Professor Staszewski’s scholarship focuses on issues of democratic theory and practice that arise in the making and implementation of law in the modern regulatory state. He has published a number of articles in leading journals on various aspects of administrative law, statutory interpretation, democratic accountability, direct democracy, and civil procedure. His most recent work has appeared or is forthcoming in the Iowa Law Review, UCLA Law Review (with Lumen N. Mulligan), and William and Mary Law Review. Professor Staszewski regularly teaches Administrative Law, Civil Procedure, and Legislation, in addition to the Law College’s first-year course on the Regulatory State.
