This fall, Richmond Law will welcome two new professors to the faculty.
Before coming to Richmond Law, Kevin Woodson was an associate professor at the Thomas R. Kline School of Law at Drexel University in Philadelphia, where his scholarship focused on employment discrimination, racial diversity in higher education and the profession, and education reform. His works have appeared in Fordham Law Review, Cardozo Law Review, and Georgia Law Review, amongst other venues, and he is currently working on a book entitled Beyond Bias? The Significance of Race for the New Black Elite. Woodson was an associate at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Halle & Dorr in Washington, D.C. He earned his Ph.D. in Sociology & Social Policy from Princeton University, his J.D. from Yale Law School, and his B.A. from Columbia University.

Luke Norris joins the Richmond Law faculty after serving as a visiting assistant professor at Cardozo Law School and a fellow at the Center for Constitutional Governance at Columbia Law School. His scholarship relates to civil procedure, labor and employment law, constitutional law, administrative law, and welfare law. Two of his articles have been published in the NYU Law Review and another has been published in the Yale Journal of Law & Humanities. Norris clerked for Judge Robert D. Sack and Judge Guido Calabresi, both of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and was a litigation associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore. He earned his J.D. from Yale Law School, his M.Sc. at Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship, and his B.A. at Gettysburg College.
Woodson will be a professor of law and will teach Criminal Procedure, Education Law, and Professional Responsibility. Norris will be an assistant professor of law and will teach Civil Procedure, Labor Law, and Arbitration.  
“We’re delighted to welcome Kevin and Luke to the Richmond Law faculty,” said Dean Wendy Perdue. “They’re both dynamic professors who will be great resources to our students.”
