We’re excited to introduce and welcome Ted Ruger to our blogging community as a regular contributor. You can start to expect posts from Ted a bit later in the fall, as he clears a few things off his desk.
Ted is Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he teaches and writes in the fields of health law, constitutional law, food and drug law, and statutory interpretation. Before joining Penn Law’s faculty in September 2004, Ted was a law professor for three years at Washington University in St. Louis, and prior to that practiced food and drug law at Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C and health law at Ropes & Gray in Boston. He clerked for Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court and Judge Michael Boudin on the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals. He is a graduate of Williams College and Harvard Law School. Ted has been a visiting professor at Yale Law School and Harvard Law School, and in Fall 2012 is visiting professor at N.Y.U. School of Law.
