lane_m4a0027_03Welcome to my website! My name is Elizabeth Lane and I am an Assistant Professor at Louisiana State University in the Department of Political Science.

I study decision-making on the United States Supreme Court. My primary research agenda examines the interplay between law and politics and its influence on judicial decision-making.

I am also interested in how external actors like attorneys and the other branches of government shape the Supreme Court’s decisions and the public’s perception of the Court.

Outside of work, I am an avid sports fan.  I love watching football and basketball and rooting on the Spartans (Go green!) and New England Patriots.  When I am not doing that I enjoy snacking, rowing, listening to audio books, and spending time with my cat, Lola.

Thank you for visiting my website.
