Professor Williams received his B.A., 1982, Haverford College; J.D., 1985, Harvard University. Board of Editors, Harvard Law Review. Law Clerk, for the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, 1985-86. Cornell Law School, 1989-93.
A noted constitutional law scholar, Professor Williams has written numerous articles in major journals throughout the country. He is a popular lecturer on Native American people and on the Second Amendment. Winner of the Wallace Teaching Award, Professor Williams teaches Constitutional Law and Native American Law.
In recent years, his research has focused on two aspects of
constitutional law: the right of Native American tribes to
self-government within the American constitutional system, and the
alleged constitutional right of the people to keep and bear arms in
order to make revolution against government. These two seemingly
unrelated topics raise the common theme of examining the possibility of
popular government outside the normal channels of state and federal
elections, and more specifically the claimed right of an "organic"
people to resist the encroachment of an "alien" government.
