United States Government

Expert Gov't Official

I served as Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel in the United States Department of Justice (and then following my tenure, as a consultant to the office). In that capacity, I worked on a number of legal issues, some of which pertain to courses I teach or things I write or speak about. The details of this work are confidential, but some opinions I signed in my capacity as Acting Assistant Attorney General are published on the Office of Legal Counsel's official website. There may be other official documents from my tenure, such as filings in FOIA litigation, that are publicly available as well.
