B.A., Ohio State University
B. Starkey has worked as a Judge Constance Baker Motley Fellow at Equal Justice Society and more recently was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Villanova Law School. His legal experience has been mainly focused on the areas of racial justice and equal protection work.
Professor Starkey’s current research proceeds down two separate tracks. Part of his research explores the myriad of problems associated with requiring plaintiffs to prove intent in equal protection lawsuits. The other side of his research agenda analyzes how blacks, through the management of social norms, can improve their legal interests.
