Adam Stevenson joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin Law School's Frank J. Remington Center in 2010, supervising the Oxford Federal Project and working with the Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons (LAIP) program. In the Oxford Federal Project, law students assist federal inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution in Oxford, WI with various postconviction issues, ranging from criminal to family law concerns. Through this experience, students learn to investigate, advise, and advocate for clients in a clinical setting. Students in the program also have the opportunity to participate in litigation in United States District Courts and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Beginning in Fall 2013, Adam will also start and direct the Federal Appeals Program, an expansion of the Oxford Federal Project that provides students the opportunity to litigate direct appeals in federal criminal cases.
Adam's research interests include federal sentencing and the United States Sentencing Guidelines. In particular, Adam's focus revolves around the use of prior convictions to enhance an individual's sentence. He also has researched methods of early release, including the mechanisms created in 2009 Wisconsin Act 28, the 2009-2011 biannual state budget.
As a University of Wisconsin Law School student, Adam worked as a student attorney in the Oxford Federal Project and as a Project Assistant for the Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons (LAIP) program. Adam also acted as a judicial intern for the Dane County Circuit Court and clerked for private practice firms engaged in criminal and civil litigation.
