About the Author

Jim Ryan joined the faculty in 1998 after completing a two-year public interest fellowship in Newark, NJ. He teaches law and education, constitutional law, land use law, local government law, and, on occasion, torts. His scholarship focuses primarily on law and educational opportunity, and he has authored or co-authored articles on school finance, school desegregation, school choice, school governance, a right to preschool, and the No Child Left Behind Act, which have appeared in the Harvard, Yale, Michigan, Virginia, California, and New York University law reviews. In 2002-03, Ryan was a visiting professor at Yale Law School. He was named the William L. Matheson & Robert M. Morgenthau Distinguished Professor in 2004, and in that year was also appointed Academic Associate Dean. In fall 2006, Ryan was a visiting professor at Harvard Law School. Ryan received his A.B. from Yale University and his J.D. from Virginia. After graduating from the Law School in 1992, Ryan first clerked for J. Clifford Wallace, then-Chief Judge of the 9th Circuit, and then for William H. Rehnquist, the late Chief Justice of the United States.
