Adam entered USC with a law degree and several years of experience practicing with a desire to expand his knowledge outside of the courtroom into developing a quantitative methodology on judicial behavior at the intersection of law and political science. Using text analysis, Adam’s research focused on litigants’ roles in framing Supreme Court policy by influencing language in the Court’s decisions. During his time at USC, Adam was published eight times in peer reviewed and refereed journals. He has been cited in the New York Times and Washington Post. He regularly presents on his research at conferences and has also taught two Constitutional Law courses at California State University, Long Beach. Adam has gained national visibility as a scholar and commentator on the United States Supreme Court and was recently accepted as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia Law School, which begins July 2017.
