David Froomkin's picture




I am a JD/PhD candidate at Yale. I work primarily on democratic theory and its application to legal issues, with particular interests in the separation of powers, administrative law, and statutory interpretation. My current research examines the relationship between the structure of government and democratic accountability, identifying distinctive democratic justifications for liberal governance institutions, including the separation of powers, administrative independence, and administrative due process protections. I received my BA from Columbia University, where I studied intellectual history.
