I am in my sixth year in the joint JD/PhD Law and Philosophy program at UCLA. My philosophical interests include Philosophy of Law, Normative Ethics, and Political Philosophy. In this academic year, I plan to graduate from the Law School and advance to PhD candidacy.
My current work involves different views of legal precedent: what it is; why and how it binds. I am currently working on a paper to fulfill the law school’s Substantial Analytic Writing (SAW) requirement, supervised by Professor Mark Greenberg (Philosophy, Law). In the paper, I consider views of the precedential effect of plurality decisions–decisions made by multi-member courts that are unable to agree on a majority opinion.
