About Nancy Leong

Professor Nancy Leong writes about constitutional rights and remedies, criminal procedure, and race and the law.

She graduated magna cum laude from Northwestern University before attending Stanford Law School, where she graduated with distinction and served as a Notes Editor on the Stanford Law Review.
