Casey Faucon

Professor Casey E. Faucon joined the faculty at the University of Alabama School of Law in 2018 as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Legal Instruction and the Director of the Entrepreneurship & Nonprofit Clinic. Prior to joining the faculty at Alabama Law, Professor Faucon was the 2015-2018 Whiting Clinical Fellow at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where she co-taught the Community Economic Development Clinic and was a participant in the Roger Salters Writing Institute, Denver’s Interdisciplinary Research Incubator of the Study of (In)Equality. Professor Faucon was previously the 2013-2015 William H. Hastie Fellow at the University of Wisconsin Law School, where she taught Marital Property. Before entering academia, Professor Faucon worked at Kean Miller LLP as a litigation and transactional associate in the construction litigation and business groups. Professor Faucon specialized in construction litigation for both private and public construction projects, transactional drafting, and construction contract negotiations for clients involved in constructing both buildings and offshore drilling and production systems.

Professor Faucon’s current scholarship focuses on the structural and operational restrictions imposed on for-profit and non-profit multidisciplinary providers (“MDPs”), through which lawyers provide legal services in collaboration with or in practice with other professional service providers. Her work addresses how such structural and operational restrictions have created a grey and black market for legal service providers, and she plans to conduct empirical research on how for-profit and non-profit MDPs operate and self-govern within the ethical rules. A recognized legal scholar on domestic polygamy, Professor Faucon’s prior research as a Hastie Fellow at the University of Wisconsin Law School was an interdisciplinary investigation into the regulation of domestic polygamy and polyamory, borrowing regulatory concepts from business entity rules and contract methods.

Professor Faucon received an LL.M. from the University of Wisconsin Law School in May 2015. She has a J.D./D.C.L. from Louisiana State University, Paul M. Hebert Law Center, where she graduated magna cum laude and served as the Executive Senior Editor of Vol. 70 of the Louisiana Law Review and served as a judicial intern to Judge Dennis of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. She has a B.A. from Rice University in Houston, Texas.
