Brandon Stump comes to Duquesne from Michigan, where he started his legal career as a civil rights attorney representing plaintiffs in police brutality and governmental misconduct cases. Stump also worked for the Michigan Court of Appeals as a research attorney, writing advisory opinions and reports for panels of the court. A graduate of the West Virginia University College of Law (2010), Stump served as editor-in-chief of the West Virginia Law Review, Vol. 112, in which he oversaw the creation of the Law Review's first independent website, a remodel of the Law Review offices, the publication of three issues of the journal, and a three-part lecture series: "Beyond Politics: A Discussion of Healthcare in America." His student note was chosen for publication by the Vol. 111 executive board: "From Reconstruction to Obama: Understanding Black Invisibility, Racism in Appalachia, and The Legal Community's Responsibility to Promote a Dialogue on Race" at the WVU College of Law.
Currently, Stump is completing a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing remotely, through the University of New Orleans, while attending summer residencies in Cork, Ireland. Stump's legal and creative writing focuses on the intersections of race, class, gender, and human sexuality.
