Biography

Born in 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 state regulation of non-traditional marital and family arrangements in a larger effort to re-examine the contours of modern marriage and relationships today. Her research proposes a procedural process to regulate polygamous marriages in the U.S. and examines the constitutional issues at stake in the polygamy debate. Her future research will focus on the mail-order bride industry and proposing new standards to determine a "good faith" marriage for spousal visa purposes. 

Casey's current work will be published in the Harvard Law & Policy Review (forthcoming 2015) and the Duke Journal of Gender Law & Policy (forthcoming 2014). Casey has previously published articles in the Tulane Law Review on property allocations in bigamous marriages and in the Louisiana Law Review on looting and property rights after Hurricane Katrina.  

Casey teaches Marital Property at the University of Wisconsin Law School in Spring 2015.

Prior to her appointment at the University of Wisconsin Law School, Casey was an associate at Kean Miller LLP in Baton Rouge, LA. Casey specialized in construction litigation for both private and public constructions, transactional drafting, and construction contract negotiations.

Casey is expected to receive an LL.M. from the University of Wisconsin Law School in May 2015. 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 served 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.
