Biography

I'm a law professor who teaches media law, gender and the law, entertainment law, theater law, torts and privacy law, European Union law, and comparative law. I write in the area of legal history, first amendment law, and law and popular culture. I recently published Law and Magic: A Collection of Essays (Carolina Academic Press), and essays on the use of magical images in law and the "psychic detective effect" on the legal system. I'm also working on a book about spiritualist Helen Duncan, tried for witchcraft in 1944.
