Profs. Gray and Goodmark Elected to ALI

November 07, 2018

The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law is proud to announce the elections of Professors David Gray and Leigh Goodmark to the American Law Institute (ALI). With the addition of Gray and Goodmark, Maryland Carey Law now boasts 27 full-time and Emeritus faculty members in the ALI.

David Gray’s research and teaching interests focus on criminal law, criminal procedure, and constitutional theory. His recent book, The Fourth Amendment in an Age of Surveillance, offers a comprehensive analysis of the interplay of the rights afforded to citizens through the 4th amendment with new and emerging surveillance technologies employed by all levels of government. He also served as editor of The Cambridge Handbook of Surveillance Law and co-authored Get a Running Start: Your Comprehensive Guide to the First Year Curriculum for entering law students. Gray has published dozens of articles and book chapters in leading journals and collections while also working closely with his students to develop and publish their own work.

Leigh Goodmark is an expert on intimate partner violence. Her book, Decriminalizing Domestic Violence: A Balanced Policy Approach to Intimate Partner Violence, explores the relationship between the criminal justice system and intimate partner violence and advocates for a rethinking of the retributive approach to domestic violence. Goodmark’s scholarship has appeared in numerous journals and law reviews, including the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, Violence Against Women, Florida State University Law Review, and the Yale Journal on Law and Feminism. In addition to Goodmark’s scholarly contributions, she also serves as the Founding Director of Maryland Carey Law’s Gender Violence Clinic. In this role, she has been instrumental in training the next generation of advocates on how the law and legal system confronts intimate partner violence.

The ALI was formed in 1923 “to promote the clarification and simplification of the law and its better adaptation to social needs, to secure the better administration of justice, and to encourage and carry on scholarly and scientific legal work.” The organization accomplishes these goals by collecting experts from the bar, the bench, and the academy to work on projects relating to emerging or changing areas of law.

Maryland Carey Law Dean Donald Tobin remarked, “We are honored to have two more of our exceptional faculty, Professors Gray and Goodmark, elected to the ALI. Election to the ALI is a great tribute to an already distinguished career and accolade certainly worthy of celebrating.”
