Curriculum Vitae (PDF)
Professor Morag-Levine joined the MSU Law faculty in fall 2004. Previously, she was assistant professor of political science at the University of Michigan, a visiting fellow at the Program in Law and Public Affairs at Princeton, and a Lady Davis post-doctoral Fellow at the Hebrew University Faculty of Law. She studies regulatory politics with an eye to the role of legal traditions and cross-national influences in shaping policy instruments.
Professor Morag-Levine is the author of Chasing the Wind: Regulating Air Pollution in the Common Law State (Princeton University Press, 2003). Her current work focuses on the place of common law ideology—defined in opposition to continental administrative paradigms—in Anglo-American regulatory history and policy. Her recent writings explore this issue within a broad legal-historical framework and with reference to specific controversies, including emissions trading, the status of the precautionary principle in regulatory regimes, and Supreme Court citations to foreign precedents.
