Luke Norris joined the Richmond Law faculty in 2018. He previously served as a visiting assistant professor at Cardozo Law School and a fellow at the Center for Constitutional Governance at Columbia Law School. His scholarship relates to civil procedure, labor and employment law, constitutional law, and welfare law. Luke’s two most recent articles, both published in the NYU Law Review, explore how labor concerns shaped the rise of the modern system of civil procedure. Luke clerked for Judge Robert D. Sack and Judge Guido Calabresi, both of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and was a litigation associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore. He earned his J.D. from Yale Law School, his M.Sc. from Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship, and his B.A. from Gettysburg College.
