 Dean Larry Kramer

Dean Larry D. Kramer was appointed the Richard E. Lang Professor of Law in 2004. Prior to joining the Stanford faculty, Dean Kramer was the Associate Dean for Research and Academics and Russell D. Niles Professor of Law at New York University School of Law. He also has been Professor of Law at the University of Chicago and the University of Michigan schools of law, in addition to serving as a consultant with the New York, NY, law firm of Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw. Early in his career, Dean Kramer was clerk to Judge Henry J. Friendly of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and to Justice William J. Brennan, Jr., of the U.S. Supreme Court. He earned a JD from the University of Chicago School of Law in 1984, having completed his undergraduate studies at Brown University, where he received an AB in psychology and religious studies in 1980. Considered to be one of the leading scholars in the country, Dean Kramer's areas of special interest include Federalism, Separation of Powers, Constitutional Law, Federal Courts, Conflict of Laws, Civil Procedure, and American Legal History. His early writings were in the area of conflict of laws. Looking for a solution to the intellectual logjam that had stultified the field since the late 1960s, Dean Kramer's solution was to reconceptualize the problem in game theoretic terms-a competition between states with overlapping interests. Beginning in the early 1990s, Dean Kramer turned from state-state conflicts to state-federal conflicts, producing a series of articles on the question of federalism. At around the same time, he developed an interest in history, and his work on the history of early federalism has been widely cited and relied upon. His most recent work has addressed the broader question of judicial review and the role of courts in a constitutional democracy. In 2004, Oxford University Press published his book, The People Themselves: Popular Constitutionalism and Judicial Review, which promises to revive and alter the ongoing debate about the relationship of the U.S. Supreme Court to politics.
