    David A. Sklansky

    As Stanley Morrison Professor of Law at Stanford Law School, David Sklansky teaches and writes about criminal law, criminal procedure, and evidence. His scholarship has addressed topics as diverse as the law, sociology, and political science of policing; the interpretation and application of the Fourth Amendment; fairness and accuracy in criminal adjudication; the relationship between criminal justice and immigration laws; and the role of race, gender, and sexual orientation in law enforcement.

    Sklansky is the author of the well-regarded evidence casebook, Evidence: Cases, Commentary, and Problems. His other recent publications include &"Crime, Immigration and Ad Hoc Instrumentalism,” New Criminal Law Review (2012); &"Evidentiary Instructions and the Jury as Other,” Stanford Law Review (2013); &"Too Much Information: How Not to Think About Privacy and the Fourth Amendment,” California Law Review (2014); and &"Two More Ways Not to Think about the Fourth Amendment,” University of Chicago Law Review (2015).

    Prior to joining the faculty of Stanford Law School in 2014, Sklansky taught at U.C. Berkeley and UCLA; he won campus-wide teaching awards at both those institutions. Earlier he practiced labor law in Washington D.C. and served as an Assistant United States Attorney in Los Angeles.
