Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law
Joshua Braver studies U.S. and comparative constitutional law with a focus on constitution-making and conflicts between courts and legislatures. His research mines the rich normative debates of past constitutional conflicts to construct limiting principles for moments when law’s boundaries must be pushed, stretched, or violated. Joshua also has secondary interests in international trade.
Joshua received his Ph.D. in political science from Yale University and a J.D. from Yale Law School. Joshua’s work has been published in the International Journal of Constitutional Law and the Georgetown International Law Review, and his co-authored casebook, the U.S. Constitution and Comparative Constitutional Law, was published by Foundation Press. He has also published shorter pieces in a variety of outlets, such as Politico, Dissent, and Talking Points Memo.
