The University Iowa College of Law is pleased to announce that Professor Andrew Jordan will be joining the Iowa Law faculty as an associate professor starting this fall.

Professor Jordan’s research focuses on issues in legal and moral philosophy, constitutional theory, and contract law. He is specifically concerned with normative issues related to constitutional adjunction, and the normative justification of contract law.

Professor Jordan's work has appeared in peer-reviewed philosophy journals, "Reasons, Holism and Virtue Theory" (Philosophical Quarterly, 2013), "Fitting Attitude Theory and the Normativity of Jokes" (Erkenntnis, 2018) and “Exclusionary Reasons, Virtuous Motivation, and Legal Authority (Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence, 2018), as well as in top law reviews, "Constitutional Anti-Theory" (Georgetown Law Journal, 2019).

Professor Jordan comes to Iowa from the University of Michigan Law School where he served as a faculty fellow from 2020-2022. Prior to joining Michigan, he clerked on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for Judge Ronald Gould and on the Ohio Supreme Court for Justice Pat DeWine.

He received a Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Washington and taught in the Department of Philosophy at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. He earned his JD from Michigan Law and is also a member of the Ohio Bar.
