Before entering academia, he served as solicitor and deputy general counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives for 11 years. He is the author of four books and several dozen articles, is a frequent witness before Congress, has litigated extensively across the country, and is often quoted in national publications.

Mr. Tiefer’s books include Veering Right (U. Cal. Berkeley 2004); Government Contract Law: Cases and Materials (2004 2d ed.
