Alex Nunn is an Assistant Professor at the University of Arkansas School of Law. In general, his research focuses on evidence and proof, exploring how practice, procedure, and the allocation of decision making authority in the courtroom affect decisional accuracy, efficiency, and legitimacy. Under this broad banner, he is currently pursuing a diverse set of theoretical and empirical projects that propose normatively desirable solutions to the problems caused by relying on an entrenched—and, in many ways, antiquated—adjudicatory regime to resolve modern legal disputes. 

Alex’s scholarship has been featured or is forthcoming in the Texas Law ReviewVanderbilt Law Review, and the peer-reviewed International Journal of Evidence and Proof. Alex currently serves as the associate producer (and occasional guest host) of Excited Utterance, a podcast focusing on scholarship in evidence and proof. He is also a member of the executive committee for the AALS evidence section and the programming committee for the Evidence Summer Workshop. Alex has twice served as a Visiting Assistant Professor, teaching two semesters of evidence at the University of Arkansas School of Law.

Before coming to Arkansas, Alex clerked for the Honorable Karen LeCraft Henderson of the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Yale Law School (expected May 2020) and is a graduate of the University of Arkansas and Vanderbilt Law School, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the Vanderbilt Law Review
