Alexander's dissertation project, Imagining Legal Change in the Roman World, explores ancient histories of law, i.e., the ways in which legal and lay writers in antiquity thought about the origin, development, and organization of law. In AY 2022–23, Alexander will be on leave to clerk on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
