Jeremiah Chin joined the faculty as an Associate Professor of Law in 2023. He teaches Constitutional Law, Race and Law, and Federal Indian Law. He received his J.D. and Ph.D. from Arizona State University. His research focuses on power and belonging, emphasizing the relationships between law and social sciences in constructions of race and Indigeneity. His articles have appeared in Boston University Law Review, the Alabama Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, Contexts Magazine, Theory into Practice, the John Marshall Law Review (now the UIC Law Review), and the Nevada Law Journal. He has taught at Arizona State University, St. Thomas University College of Law, and Boston University School of Law.
Recently, Jeremiah completed the book "The School-Prison Trust" with Dr. Sabina Vaught and Dr. Bryan Brayboy for the University of Minnesota Press, which engages the intertwined histories of conquest, incarceration, and education for Black and Native youth in the United States. His most recent article, "Antimatters" considers how confederate monuments function as forms of governance; protected under the First Amendment doctrine of government speech, yet simultaneously insulated from local governmental control.
