Paul Boudreaux teaches and writes on topics of "law and geography," including environmental law, natural resources law, property, and land use law. Particular areas of interest in recent years have included endangered species protection, water quality, suburban sprawl, and urban redevelopment. During the 2009-10 academic year, he served as the LeRoy Highbaugh Sr. Research Chair. He is working on a book exploring the socially exclusionary effects of land use laws.
He received his J.D. at the University of Virginia School of Law, where he was executive editor of the Virginia Law Review and was selected for the Order of the Coif. He later was awarded an LL.M. degree from Georgetown. Before law school, he received his bachelor's degree at the University of Virginia, studied economics as a graduate fellow at the University of Wisconsin, and edited a newsletter on consumer credit law.

Professor of Law
Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad College of Law
Professor Areto Imoukhuede is a professor of law at Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad College of Law and is currently on sabbatical as a visitor at the University of Illinois College of Law.
Professor Imoukhuede holds a J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center, where he served as President of the Student Bar Association and was awarded the Dean’s Certificate for Outstanding Service. He holds a B.A. in Economics from Northwestern University where he was awarded the Golden Bear Award for Financial Acumen. Professor Imoukhuede has taught contracts, U.S. Constitutional law, an advanced course on constitutional law and theory, Administrative Law, and an international law course overseas. Professor Imoukhuede researches fundamental rights as duties under the U.S. Constitution. He has presented his academic research across the nation and overseas including at Seton Hall, UNLV, SMU, as well as in Athens, Greece and Rome, Italy.
Professor Imoukhuede’s education and homeland security research address unmet constitutional obligations of government. His article, The Fifth Freedom: The Constitutional Duty to Provide Public Education is a compelling argument on the fundamental U.S. Constitutional duty to provide public education. Freedom from Ignorance: The International Duty to Provide Public Education, is equally powerful, arguing that public education is an international human right that the U.S. ought to recognize and protect. His most recent education article, published the Indiana Law Review, Education Rights and The New Due Process, delineates how an educated citizenry is required for liberty and democracy, and the absence of education renders these ideals devoid of meaning for all but the economically privileged and socially advantaged.
Core tenets of both his education and homeland security research are fundamental rights and unmet constitutional obligations of government. The Real Homeland Security Gaps, appearing in the Ohio Northern University Law Review, explores privatization and the constitutional duty to protect public safety. His forthcoming article in the Seton Hall Law Review, Gun Rights and the New Lochnerism, suggests that recent changes in Second Amendment doctrine reflect a retrogression to long abandoned Great Depression-era legal theories and laissez-fare policies.
Before joining the Shepard Broad College of Law’s faculty, Professor Imoukhuede served as Investigative Counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security. There he investigated the operations of the Department of Homeland Security and drafted legislation and committee reports while also advising the Members of Congress on Homeland Security law and policy.
Professor Imoukhuede served as a Congressional Fellow in the U.S. House of Representatives where he conducted extensive research on U.S. education policy and related domestic and international issues. He also interned in the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division where he concentrated on airline mergers and international commerce issues.
In addition to his federal government service, Professor Imoukhuede was an attorney in the Chicago offices of a large U.S. law firm, specializing in complex commercial litigation and business regulation. He represented several Fortune 100 clients in major antitrust, pharmaceutical, and franchising disputes.
Professor Imoukhuede is a member of the Bars of Illinois, the District of Columbia, and the Northern District of Illinois. He is a proud Eagle Scout.
