Evan C. Zoldan researches legislation, including legislative power, the legislative process, and statutory interpretation. His work on legislative power questions the power of Congress and state legislatures to target named individuals for special treatment. His most recent article about targeted legislation, The Equal Protection Component of Legislative Generality, was selected for presentation at the Yale / Stanford / Harvard Junior Faculty Forum at Yale Law School. This paper was selected after a blind review to represent the category of Constitutional Law: Theoretical Foundations. His work on legislation has been cited by both federal state appellate courts and in briefs, treatises, and scholarly works. Professor Zoldan is currently serving as Chair-Elect of the Association of American Law Schools Section on Legislation. He also organizes and serves as Chair of the Legislation Section’s New Voices Program.  Professor Zoldan teaches Legislation, Administrative Law, Civil Procedure, and Health Care Fraud. 

Professor Zoldan received his law degree, cum laude, from Georgetown University Law Center, where he served as Notes & Articles Editor of Georgetown’s Law & Policy in International Business journal. He received his B.A., summa cum laude, from New York University, where he studied political philosophy. After law school, Professor Zoldan served as law clerk to judges on the United States Court of Federal Claims and the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.  Before joining the faculty of Toledo Law, he worked as an associate at Kirkland & Ellis LLP and as a trial attorney for the United States Department of Justice.
