Nicholas Almendares focuses on administrative law, complex litigation and the role of courts in a modern democracy.
He joined the Tulane Law faculty in August 2014 as a visiting assistant professor. His teaching and research interests also extend to civil procedure, torts, election law, federalism, legal theory and the interplay of law, economics and politics.
His recent scholarship includes proposals for alternative campaign finance mechanisms in light of the limits set by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. FEC
ruling; analysis of the unexpected democracy-enhancing effects of judicial review; and an examination of joint intention, including its application to criminal liability and conspiracy.
Before coming to Tulane, Almendares worked as a law clerk to Senior U.S. District Judge Janis Graham Jack in Corpus Christi, Texas, and as a research associate for the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation.
