Brian C. Kalt

Brian C. Kalt is an American professor of law. He has taught at Michigan State University College of Law in East Lansing since July 2000. He received tenure in 2006, and has been a full professor and the Harold Norris Faculty Scholar since 2010. He teaches Torts and Administrative Law. His research focuses on structural constitutional law, the presidency, and juries.[1][2]

His 2005 article "The Perfect Crime" argues that it is impossible to properly try major crimes committed in the Idaho portion of Yellowstone National Park because of the Constitution's Vicinage Clause.

Kalt, who received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan,[2] earned his juris doctor from Yale Law School, where he was an editor on the Yale Law Journal. After law school, he served as a law clerk for the Honorable Danny J. Boggs, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.[1] He has occasionally written op-eds for national newspapers.[3][4]
