Welcome! This is the webpage of David L. Jones, PhD candidate in Political Science at the University at Albany-SUNY.
Please excuse any mistakes or missing information. This website is still under construction and I expect it to be complete around May 2016.
The purpose of this site is to provide background information on myself, my interests as a scholar, and my academic credentials. I also periodically use this site to store information for my students.
My primary field of field interest in teaching and research is Public Law. I have specific research interests in legal mobilization, law and society, and civil rights & civil liberties. More broadly, I enjoy ruminating on the ways that litigating acts as a resource to achieve social change. I also have a great deal of interest in American Politics subjects which often interact with my law related interests. These topics include: social movements, American Political Development, and the presidency.
My passion in graduate school has been teaching and I am committed to excelling in that area. In total, I have taught six semesters (including summers) as an instructor of record and another six semesters as a teaching assistant. The two courses I have led are: Law, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (three times); and Law and Policy (three). I have also taught on-line versions of Law, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity after completing the University's On-line Course Development Program.
