Constitutional Law Professor Joins Faculty
Schraub has held teaching positions at DePaul University College of Law, the University of Illinois Law School, and the University of California at Berkeley. He graduated with high honors from the University of Chicago Law School, where he was articles editor on the University of Chicago Law Review. Schraub earned his BA in political science, magna cum laude and with distinction, from Carleton College and a PhD, also in political science, from the University of California at Berkeley.
Schraub clerked for Judge Diana E. Murphy of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, and was an associate at Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C., with a practice that focused on energy and Indian law matters.
Constitutional law, says Schraub, is “where the rubber meets the road on so many important questions of political justice. What is free speech? What is due process? How do we define equity and justice? These are some of the basic issues that constitutional law examines.”
He’s looking forward to mentoring both law and undergrad students, Schraub says. “It’s critical to be able to see a possible future for yourself by the example of others. I was lucky to have had a series of tremendous mentors in both college and law school who invested themselves in my future success. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to pay that forward as a professor at Lewis & Clark.”
