Casey E. Faucon is the 2015-2018 Whiting Clinical Fellow at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where she co-teaches and co-supervises upper level law students enrolled in the Community Economic Development Clinic, the law school’s only business and transactional clinic in which Student Attorneys provide pro bono transactional legal services to small businesses, start-ups, social enterprises, artists, non-profits, and community development organizations in the Denver metro area. Casey was previously the 2013-2015 William H. Hastie Fellow at the University of Wisconsin Law School, where she taught Marital Property.
Casey’s current scholarship focuses on the structural and operational restrictions imposed on for-profit and non-profit multidisciplinary providers (“MDPs”), through which lawyers provide legal services in collaboration with or in practice with other professional service providers. Her work addresses how such structural and operational restrictions have created a grey and black market for legal service providers. Casey also plans to conduct an empirical analysis of how both for-profit and non-profit MDPs operate and self-govern within the restrictions imposed by the ethical rules.
A recognized legal scholar on domestic polygamy, Casey’s prior research as a Hastie Fellow at Wisconsin Law School was an interdisciplinary investigation into the regulation of domestic polygamy, borrowing regulatory concepts from business entity rules and contract methods. That research inspired and produced three articles published in the Utah Law Review, the Harvard Law & Policy Review, and the Duke Journal of Gender Law & Policy. Case has participated in numerous invited speaking engagements, including an invited talk by the American Constitution Society at Penn Law School and a radio interview produced by RadioWest, a Salt Lake City NPR affiliate.
Prior to her appointment at Wisconsin, Casey worked at Kean Miller LLP as a litigation and transactional associate in the construction litigation and business groups. Casey specialized in construction litigation for both private and public constructions, transactional drafting, and construction contract negotiations for clients involved in constructing both buildings and offshore production systems.
Casey received an LL.M. from the University of Wisconsin Law School in May 2015. Casey has a J.D./D.C.L. from Louisiana State University, Paul M. Hebert Law Center, where she graduated magna cum laude and served as the Executive Senior Editor of Vol. 70 of the Louisiana Law Review. Casey has a B.A. from Rice University in Houston, Texas.
