Professor Dustin Buehler teaches civil procedure, federal courts, and law and economics, and was named Professor of the Year by the graduating class in 2012 and 2013. His research focuses on federal jurisdiction, and the use of economic analysis to assess legal rules and public policy. His recent work has appeared in the Boston University Law Review, George Mason Law Review, and Ohio State Law Journal, and has been cited by federal and state courts, Moore's Federal Practice, and leading civil litigation scholars.
In addition to his teaching and scholarship, Professor Buehler established and directs the law school's Federal Appellate Litigation Project, which provides students with an opportunity to brief and argue pro bono cases before the federal appellate courts. He also serves as the faculty advisor for the Arkansas Law Review.
Prior to joining the University of Arkansas faculty, Professor Buehler clerked for Judge Alfred Goodwin on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, practiced commercial litigation at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP in Seattle, and taught civil procedure at the University of Washington.
Professor Buehler earned his B.A. in Politics and History from Willamette University, and received his J.D. from the University of Washington. While in law school, he served as the Associate Editor-in-Chief of the Washington Law Review, President of the Moot Court Honor Board, and won the National Moot Court Competition.
Outside the classroom, Professor Buehler enjoys running, bicycling, watching baseball with his wife and daughter, and once held a Guinness World Record after lecturing for nearly 52 hours on the history of the American presidency.
