Welcome to my website! My name is Elizabeth Lane and an Assistant Professor at the School of Public and International Affairs in the Department of Political Science at North Carolina State University.

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, litigants, other branches of government, and the identity of these actors, shape the Supreme Court’s decisions ad the public’s perception of the Court.

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

Thank you for visiting my website.
