Briana Lynn Rosenbaum


Briana Rosenbaum joined Stanford in 2009. Her research interests center on procedure, institutional design and reform, and access to justice in the federal justice system. Specifically, her research focuses on two primary areas: criminal sentencing appeals and legal representation for pro se civil litigants. Her current research involves a critique of the common norm of a limited appellate role in criminal sentencing.

Prior to joining Stanford, Briana worked as an associate in the San Francisco office of Bingham McCutchen. There, her practice focused on e-discovery and pre-trial motion practice in complex and international litigation.

Briana received her B.S. in Political Science in 2000 from Santa Clara University. She went on to obtain her J.D. from U.C. Hastings, College of the Law in 2004, where she served as Notes Advisor on the Hastings Law Journal, was elected Order of the Coif, and graduated magna cum laude. After law school, Briana served as a law clerk for Chief Judge Anthony J. Scirica of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and for Judge David F. Levi, former Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California and Chairman of the Standing Committee on the Federal Rules of Practice and Procedure.
