Biography

Enrique Guerra-Pujol was awarded his B.A. (with Highest Honors) from the University of California at Santa Barbara, where he received his Phi Beta Kappa key during his junior year, and he then completed his J.D. from Yale University. From 1991 to 1993, he was a Senior Editor of the Yale Law Journal.

Professor Guerra-Pujol joined the University of Central Florida as a lecturer in law in 2014. Before joining the UCF faculty, he taught at the Pontifical Catholic University School of Law in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Before entering academia in 1998, he practiced corporate law with the law firms of McConnell Valdes and Cancio, Nadal & Rivera in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He has consulted on several important federal cases and argued a tax case before the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the First Circuit. In addition, he was named a Ronald Coase Fellow in 2005.

Professor Guerra-Pujol has written on matters of constitutional law, on emerging issues in law and technology, and in other areas of law. His scholarship has appeared in several edited books, in peer-reviewed journals, and in traditional law reviews, including the John Marshall Law Review, the Capital University Law Review, the Criminal Law Bulletin, the Washington University Jurisprudence Review, and the European Journal of Legal Studies. In addition, some of his works in progress are available at the social science research network (SSRN).
