Tulane's Gordley Elected to the British Academy

James Gordley, a leading scholar of comparative law and legal history and professor at Tulane Law School, has been elected a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy.  In addition, the legal historian Neil Duxbury (LSE), who is a frequent Visiting Professor at the University of Virginia Law School, was elected a Fellow.

Relatively few U.S. law professors are Corresponding Fellows of the British Academy, which is reserved for scholars not teaching in the U.K.; they include Ronald Coase (emeritus), R.H. Helmholz, Martha Nussbaum, and Senior Lecturer (and, of course, Judge) Richard Posner at the University of Chicago Law School; Judge Guido Calabresi, emeritus at Yale Law School; Sanford Kadish, emeritus at Berkeley; and Thomas Nagel, who holds a joint appointment in the Law School and Philosophy Department at New York University.
