 Curriculum Vitae



While at LAPA
Elizabeth Magill is the John V. Ray Research Professor at the University of Virginia School of Law. She earned a B.A. in history at Yale University in 1988 and a J.D. at the University of Virginia School of Law in 1995. Before entering law school, she worked for four years as a Legislative Assistant to U.S. Senator Kent Conrad. Following law school, she clerked for the Honorable J. Harvie Wilkinson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and then for The Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court. She joined the Virginia faculty in 1997. Her research interests are in constitutional law and administrative law. Her scholarship in constitutional law is about separation of powers theory and law and her scholarship in administrative law is focused on agency behavior and judicial controls on that behavior. Her work has been published in the University of Chicago Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, and the Virginia Law Review. Her most recent article, "The Revolution that Wasn't," is about the Rehnquist Court's separation of powers jurisprudence and will soon be published in the Northwestern University Law Review. While at Princeton, she will start a book project on the environmental, health and safety, and consumers' rights regulatory revolution of the 1960s and 1970s and its implications for public law. At Princeton, she will be the Martin and Kathleen Crane Fellow in Law and Public Affairs.
