It gives me great pleasure to announce that my colleague, Prof B. Jessie Hill, will be guest blogging with us this month. Jessie is no stranger to the blogosphere, but this will be her first (and hopefully not her last) stint with Faculty Lounge. She has been at Case Western since 2003 and has a background in First Amendment and civil rights law, having previously worked for the ACLU in New York amongst other things. She teaches Civ Pro, Civil Rights, and a Reproductive Rights seminar as well as delving into other areas like Con Law. She publishes largely in the areas of law and religion and constitutional law. Prior to joining the faculty she also clerked for the Honorable Karen Nelson Moore of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Welcome to the Lounge, Jessie! Have fun.
