In Defense of Nationwide Injunctions


In Defense of Nationwide Injunctions



Professor Amanda Frost, now associated with University of Virginia School of Law, presented a working draft of her work In Defense of Nationwide Injunctions. This work provides the first sustained academic defense of nationwide injunctions. In some cases, nationwide injunctions are the only means to provide plaintiffs with complete relief, or to prevent harm to thousands of individuals who cannot quickly bring their own cases before the courts.


Formerly from American University Washington College of Law, “Amanda Frost writes and teaches in the fields of constitutional law, immigration and citizenship law, federal courts and jurisdiction, and judicial ethics. Her articles have appeared in the Duke Law Journal, the Northwestern Law Review, the N.Y.U Law Review, and the Virginia Law Review, among others. Her non-academic writing has been published in The Atlantic, Slate, the Washington Post, the New York Times, USA Today, and the L.A. Times, and she authors the “Academic round-up” column for SCOTUSblog. Before entering academia, Professor Frost clerked for Judge A. Raymond Randolph on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and spent five years as a staff attorney at Public Citizen, where she litigated cases at all levels of the federal judicial system. She has also worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee, served as Acting Director of the Immigrant Justice Clinic, and spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar studying transparency reform in the European Union.”
