About John Bronsteen

Professor Bronsteen joined the Loyola faculty in 2005. His research applies the findings of hedonic psychology (the study of what makes people happy) to civil settlement, criminal punishment, and regulatory decisionmaking. His articles have been published in the Columbia Law Review, the University of Chicago Law Review, the California Law Review, and the Georgetown Law Journal, among many others.
After graduating from law school, Professor Bronsteen clerked for Chief Judge Douglas Ginsburg of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He was then an associate at Goldstein & Howe in Washington, D.C., where he primarily worked on the litigation of U.S. Supreme Court cases. Before coming to Loyola, he spent two years as a Bigelow Teaching Fellow and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Law School.
