Lori A. Ringhand teaches courses on constitutional law, election law and state and local government law. She has been a member of the Georgia Law faculty since 2008. Professor Ringhand's research focuses on the Supreme Court confirmation process. She has published numerous law review articles exploring the ways in which the confirmation process influences constitutional change, and is the coauthor of a book (forthcoming with Cambridge University Press) that uses an original dataset to further explore that question. Professor Ringhand also is the coauthor of a Constitutional Law casebook published as part of the Context and Practice series put out by Carolina Academic Press. Before coming to UGA, Ringhand served on the faculty of the University of Kentucky College of Law, and as a visiting scholar at the Oxford Institute of European and Comparative Law. She currently is the Director of the UGA Law Semester at Oxford Program. Professor Ringhand also is the recipient of the 2010 Ronald Ellignton Award for Excellence in Teaching. This award, which is awarded by the graduating class, goes to the faculty member who must "effectively conveys his or her knowledge and understanding of what the law is and inspires his or students to think analytically and critically about what the law can become."
