I teach courses in Constitutional Law, Civil Liberties, and Courts and Social Policy, and Law and Society. My research is in American Political Development, particularly in the relations of government to business corporations. I have published work on the development of state incorporation laws, and on the development of federal regulation in the early twentieth century. I am the campus faculty adviser for the BA/MPA program with the Rockefeller College at UAlbany, and am one of four pre-law advisors on campus, and serve on the University Planning and Budget Committee.
