Andrea Katz

Associate Professor of Law

Andrea Scoseria Katz is an Associate Professor of Law at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis. Professor Katz teaches and writes about constitutional law, with a focus on presidential power. Her work draws from constitutional law, legal history, political theory and comparative politics to explore questions of separation-of-powers theory, constitutionalism, and the development of the American president and the modern administrative state, especially during the Progressive Era (1890-1920). Her work has appeared in the Columbia Law Review, the Texas Law Review, the Harvard Law Review Forum and the International Journal of Constitutional Law, among others. Professor Katz has also published work on courts, constitutional amendments, and presidential power in Brazil, Colombia, and Uruguay.

Professor Katz received a Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University and a J.D. from Yale Law School. After law school, Professor Katz clerked at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France for Judge András Sajó, and in the District of Massachusetts for Judge Michael A. Ponsor.
