Kim Lane Scheppele is the Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School and the University Center for Human Values, and director of the Program in Law and Public Affairs at Princeton University. A graduate of Barnard College (A.B.) and the University of Chicago (Ph.D.), she has taught law, political science, public policy, gender studies and sociology at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, University of Michigan and Central European University, Budapest. Her many publications include scholarly articles in law reviews and academic journals and the award-winning Legal Secrets: Equality and Efficiency in the Common Law (University of Chicago Press). After the revolutions of 1989, she focused her attention on the transformation of the countries under Soviet domination into constitutional rule-of-law states. Since 9/11, she has researched the effects of the international "war on terror" on constitutional protections around the world. Her  forthcoming book, Judging After 9/11, will be published in early 2012 by Harvard University Press.
