Kate Andrias' research and teaching interests include administrative law, constitutional law, civil procedure, workplace law, and election law. Her current work focuses on the role of the President in coordinating agency enforcement activity, and, more broadly, on issues of presidential power and administration. She is also interested in problems of political and economic inequality and their relationship to constitutional governance and administration.
Prior to joining Columbia Law School, Kate served as Special Assistant and Associate Counsel to the President of the United States, and Chief of Staff of the White House Counsel’s Office. While in the White House, she focused on constitutional and administrative law issues and on domestic policy, including labor and immigration. Previously, Kate worked in the Washington, D.C. office of Perkins Coie LLP in the areas of political law and appellate litigation, including as outside counsel to Obama for America. In addition, she has clerked for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court and Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. In between those clerkships, Kate taught American Constitutional Law as a Visiting Professor at L'Institut d'Études Politiques (Sciences Po) in Paris, France. She has also practiced labor law and worked as a union organizer. Kate graduated from Yale Law School in 2004, where she served on the Yale Law Journal and as a Coker Fellow.
