Bridget Fahey

Assistant Professor of Law University of Chicago


Bridget Fahey’s research focuses on the theory and practice of American federalism, especially how our domestic governments interact in unexpected ways and use unorthodox legal tools to structure their complex joint projects. Fahey received a BA in Political Science from the University of Chicago and a JD from Yale Law School. Before joining the faculty, she was a litigator at the Washington, DC, office of WilmerHale, held a fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and was a law clerk on the DC Circuit and on the Supreme Court of the United States for Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Earlier in her career, Fahey worked as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group in Chicago and Berlin.
