Todd J. Zywicki, George Mason University Foundation Professor of Law at the George Mason University Antonin Scalia School of Law, will join the Bruce D. Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization at University of Colorado, Boulder as the Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy for Fall 2023.

Professor Zywicki is a distinguished legal scholar with expertise in law and economics, the regulation of consumer finance, and bankruptcy law. He has testified before Congress on consumer bankruptcy law and consumer credit and is the author of more than 130 law review and peer-reviewed economics journal articles.

At CU, Professor Zywicki will offer undergraduate courses on "The Rule of Law" and "Hayek and his Critics" as well as host public events for students, faculty, staff, and the broader CU community.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join the CU community for the Fall semester. For years I have watched the Benson Center grow as an intellectual force on the CU campus and the national academy. In this time of national polarization I applaud the support of the university administration to encourage dialogue and diversity of thought on campus and to do my part to live up to that charge."  

Professor Zywicki received his JD from the University of Virginia, an MA in Economics from Clemson University, and an AB from Dartmouth College.
