Leigh Osofsky joined the Carolina Law faculty as a professor of law in 2018. Her scholarship focuses on tax law and the administrative and legislative process. Osofsky is the author of numerous articles about how agencies and legislatures administer complex legal regimes. Her work has appeared in Cornell Law Review, Iowa Law Review, Emory Law Journal, the Yale Journal on Regulation, and NYU’s Tax Law Review, among others.
In 2022, Osofsky co-authored a report for the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) that resulted in ACUS adopting twenty recommendations about the use of automated legal guidance, which will apply to all federal agencies, and which were published in the Federal Register.
