Professor Hansford joins the SLU LAW faculty after clerking for Judge Damon Keith on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit (2009-2010) and serving as a law fellow with both the University of Maryland School of Law and Georgetown University Law Center.

Professor Hansford’s research incorporates legal history, legal ethics, critical race theory, human rights, and the Global Justice Movement in a broader attempt to interrogate injustice in society. He has a B.A. from Howard University and a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center, where he was a founder of The Georgetown Journal of Law and Modern Critical Race Perspectives. After obtaining his J.D., Professor Hansford assisted in the founding of Imagine Southeast Public Charter School, in Washington, D.C.
