Throughout Summer, College of Law Faculty in Demand by Top-Tier Media

College of Law experts have been in strong and constant demand throughout the summer months, even as their classrooms await the return of students in mid-August. In fact, it's been an unprecedented summer of media requests to our faculty, with reporters regularly contacting the College media team for help with subjects ranging from the immigration crisis, patent cases, and disability and civil rights to the state of civility, New York State’s “cable crisis”, and veterans' health care.

A few national news stories have dominated the summer, and the College’s world-class professors are well-positioned to provide commentary and much-needed explainers about political and legal machinations on Capitol Hill. 

For instance, Professor Emeritus William C. Banks continued to educate Bloomberg Law listeners about the Mueller Probe; Professor Paula Johnson and Professor Emerita Janis McDonald spoke to news outlets across the US and beyond about the re-opening of the Emmitt Till case; and Vice Dean Keith J. Bybee helped NPR listeners and CBS Sunday Morning viewers put the contemporary state of political civility in proper context.

Here's a complete list, with hyperlinks, of all the College of Law faculty summer media appearances:
