Originally from South Korea and raised in the New Orleans area, Casey Faucon is the 2013-2015 William H. Hastie Fellow at the University of Wisconsin Law School. Casey's current research project, "Taboo! Marriage on the Margins," focuses on how the state regulates the marriage relationship when it falls outside of the traditional two-person, male/female dynamic. She is currently researching religious-based polygamy in the United States, arguing from both a multicultural perspective as well as a constitutional one. Her future research will focus on mail-order brides and negotiating romance over the world wide web. Casey has previously published articles in the Tulane Law Review on property allocations in "good faith" bigamous marriages and in the Louisiana Law Review on looting and property rights after Hurricane Katrina. Casey's teaching interests include Family Law I & II, Marital Property, Constitutional Law I & II, Property, Business Associations I & II, Contracts/Obligations, Trusts and Estates, ADR, Comparative Law and Legal History, and Law and Religion.
Prior to her appointment at the University of Wisconsin Law School, Casey was an associate at Kean Miller LLP in Baton Rouge, LA, a business and litigation firm in the capital region. Casey specialized in construction litigation for both private and public constructions and in construction contract negotiations for clients building drilling spars and floating production systems on the Outer Continental Shelf in the Gulf of Mexico.
Casey has a J.D./D.C.L. from Louisiana State University, Paul M. Hebert School of Law, where she graduated magna cum laude, served as the Executive Senior Editor of Vol. 70 of the Louisiana Law Review, worked as a research assistant to Professor Andrea Beauchamp Carroll and Professor Ronald J. Scalise, Jr., and worked as a judicial extern to Judge Dennis of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Casey has a B.A. from Rice University in Houston, Texas.
