Sally Brown Richardson specializes in property law, both civil and common, with a particular focus on the balance between an individual's right of ownership and society's desire to use real property efficiently.
Before attending law school, she worked on Capitol Hill for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, as Deputy Communications Director and Legislative Correspondent for Health, Welfare, Women and Children. She later clerked for Judge W. Eugene Davis on the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and worked on energy regulation and litigation for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in Washington, D.C.
Richardson, who joined the Tulane Law faculty in 2012, also frequently writes law review articles and gives scholarly presentations on community property. She is currently working on a new edition of Community Property in the United States, a textbook scheduled for publication in 2014 by Carolina Academic Press, and on a law review article that rethinks the doctrine of adverse possession.
