Professor Erik Luna

With the US and UK challenged by political violence, Professor Erik Luna, our Fulbright Distinguished Chair, will discuss our reactions to terrorist threats and how Anglo-American counter terrorism law can lead overwhelmingly peaceful communities to become the focus of law enforcement efforts, risking racial profiling. 

Professor Tim Softley Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research and Knowledge Transfer) invites you to the Fulbright Distinguished Lecture and Drinks Reception to introduce our visiting Fulbright Distinguished Chair, Professor Erik Luna, who we are proud to welcome to the University of Birmingham for a period of six months.

This is also an opportunity to learn more about the range of Fulbright Awards available at the University of Birmingham and how Birmingham Academics can benefit from hosting a Fulbright Scholar and Distinguished Chair. 

Erik Luna is the Amelia D. Lewis Professor of Constitutional & Criminal Law at Arizona State University, where he teaches and writes primarily in the areas of criminal law and procedure. Luna has been a senior Fulbright Scholar at Victoria University Law School (Wellington, NZ), a visiting scholar with the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law (Freiburg, DE), a visiting professor with the Cuban Society of Penal Sciences (Havana, CU), a visiting professional in the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (The Hague, NL), and a research fellow with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Bonn, DE). Prior to joining Arizona State University, Luna was the Sydney & Frances Lewis Professor of Law at Washington & Lee University, and before that, he was the Hugh B. Brown Professor of Law at the University of Utah. Among other professional affiliations, he is an adjunct scholar with the Cato Institute and a member of the American Law Institute.
