A former U.S. Supreme Court clerk and staff economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisers, Bert I. Huang is an expert on civil procedure, torts, and remedies. He often uses empirical analysis in his research—for one project, he and a group of students are using survey experiments to see if the law influences people’s moral intuitions. The study was awarded a Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law Global Innovation Award by Columbia Law School. Huang also has studied civil damages and appellate decisions.
Off campus, Huang has advised Brazil’s constitutional high court and Ministry of Justice on issues related to judicial caseloads, certiorari, and appellate review. He has also advised the constitutional high court in Taiwan on procedures and practices in the U.S. federal court system.
