Bridget Fahey is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School, where she teaches constitutional law and contract law, and co-coordinates the Constitutional Law Workshop. Her research focuses on the theory and practice of American federalism, especially the forms of intergovernmental interaction, joint lawmaking, and collaborative governance that challenge traditional paradigms of federal-state relations.
Bridget graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in Political Science in 2008 and from Yale Law School in 2014. Before joining the faculty, she was a litigator at the Washington DC office of WilmerHale, held a fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and was a law clerk on the DC Circuit and on the Supreme Court of the United States for Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Before law school, Bridget worked as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group in Chicago and Berlin.
