Participating Faculty Interests and Expertise:
Prof. Jamee Moudud, Sarah Lawrence College (Economics)
Academic Interests: I am a heterodox economist whose work is theoretically grounded in the frameworks of the “old” institutional economists (Commons, Dubois etc.) and American legal realism. My current work is on central banks and their relationship to the racial construction of capitalism in colonized societies as well as their role in promoting industrialization. In short, my research is in the tradition of the constitutional theory of money literature. I’m also interested in how insights from law can be used to reach economists.
Particular career strategy interest or expertise: I would be happy to provide any guidance to students seeking academic positions outside law schools, for example in liberal arts colleges.
Prof. Faith Stevelman, New York Law School
Academic Interests: As a US professor of law, I have taught law classes on Corporations, Business Associations, private corporations courses, corporate governance seminars, market regulation, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and corporate theory. I have a graduate school background in history, as well, and have studied and written about the role of the economy and economics in structuring law in this field. I am familiar with the US corporate governance profession (business lawyers and ‘Big Law’ firms, investment banking and bankers, etc).
Career strategy interests or expertise: I am particularly able to speak to undergrads thinking about their college degree and future, and the same for law students and people weighing graduate school. I hope that I can help students enunciate their own issues, concerns, and goals.
Dr. John D. Haskell, Senior Lecturer,University of Manchester Law
I have taught on tenure track contracts in the US and UK to undergrad, masters and JD students around ‘black- letter’ law courses, most commonly: administrative law, contract law, international business transactions, jurisprudence, legaltech, and public international law. I supervise a number of PhD students and run postgraduate and PhD research workshops. My research focuses most often on international legal history and theory, with an interest in the sociology of expertise around the intersection of law-money-religion-technology.
I am broadly happy to speak with students, and probably most helpful with students that have an orientation in law and who are considering the next steps in their careers (within or outside academia) or trying to push a particular line of thought within different organizational contexts.
