Noga Morag-Levine teaches Environmental Law and the first-year class on Constitutional Law and the Regulatory State. Her scholarship combines environmental regulation, legal history, and comparative law. In particular, her work examines the ways in which common-law-grounded conceptions of nuisance law, as a substantive limit on the method and scope of legitimate public health interventions, have shaped the evolution of Anglo-American environmental regimes. Her research considers this issue across various periods in British and American history, as well as within contemporary environmental controversies over the precautionary principle, regulatory-instrument choice, and environmental injustice.

Professor Morag-Levine has published numerous articles in leading journals, most recently Law and History Review, and the American Journal of Comparative Law. She is also the author of Chasing the Wind: Regulating Air Pollution in the Common Law State (Princeton University Press, 2003). Her current book project is provisionally titled “Elsewhere: Relocation, Mitigation and the Long History of Pollution Injustice.”

Professor Morag-Levine graduated cum laude from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Faculty of Law and holds a Ph.D. in Jurisprudence and Social Policy from the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to joining the Michigan State College of Law in 2004 she was an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan, a Visiting Fellow in the Program on Law and Public Affairs at Princeton University, and a Lady Davis Fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
