David Schraub

Title: Darling Foundation Fellow
Tel: 510-642-1419
Email Address: dschraub@law.berkeley.edu

David Schraub is the Darling Foundation Fellow in Public Law at the Law School. His research and teaching interests are in the areas of constitutional and anti-discrimination law, law and religion, and energy law. In particular, David's research considers the non-legal effects of legal decisions, including how judicial rulings affect the social meaning of concepts such as "equality," "due process", and "discrimination". His most recent paper, "Sticky Slopes," 101 Cal. L. Rev. 1249 (2013), explores situations where prior social movement victories act to block rather than enable further movement goals. David's other scholarship has been published in, among other locations, the University of Chicago Law Review, the Loyola University (Chicago) Law Journal, and Cardozo Law Review de novo.

Prior to joining the Berkeley faculty, David served as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois College of Law and clerked for Judge Diana E. Murphy on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Most recently, David was an associate at Covington & Burling LLP in Washington, D.C., where he focused his practice on energy and Indian law matters. He graduated with high honors from the University of Chicago Law School in 2011, and earned his degree in Political Science, magna cum laude and with distinction, from Carleton College in 2008.
