Kate Brown

Brown received her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. Her research explores how English legal principles--including the Crown's prerogative power--developed into American jurisprudence during the early national period. She is interested in how Hamilton and Washington shaped the American executive prerogative, as well as legal precedents for sustaining this authority.
