Five Questions with Ana Robalinho

Richard Albert, William Stamps Farish Professor in Law and Professor of Government, The University of Texas at Austin

In “Five Questions” here at I-CONnect, we invite a public law scholar to answer five questions about scholarship.

This edition of “Five Questions” features a short video interview with Ana Robalinho, an incoming doctoral student at the Yale Law School and currently a law clerk at the Federal Supreme Court of Brazil in the Chambers of Justice Luís Roberto Barroso. She holds an undergraduate law degree from the University of Brasilia as well as two master’s degrees in law, one each from the Yale Law School and the University of São Paulo.

Asked to identify her favorite paper among the ones she has authored, she selected Brazil in Comparative Perspective: The Legacy of the Founding, and the Future of Constitutional Development, published in the Journal of Constitutional Research.
