Undergraduate Research Opportunities - Timothy R. Johnson

I have advised Undergraduate Research Opportunities (UROPs) on the development of precedent (2003), retirements from the Supreme Court (2004), foreign law citations in Supreme Court opinions (2009), the use of precedent by the Supreme Court (2009), and the relationship between the Supreme Court's Docket and Public Opinion (2009-2010). 

Each of these projects has led to either a Ph.D. dissertation (after graduation) for the student researcher (Darryn Beckstrom in 2004 and Amanda Bryan in 2010), or has extended my own research projects (Ryan Black 2003, Andrew Hart 2009, and Al Wepsala 2009).
