Professor of Law, Marquette University Law School

He has written about how disinformation about “voter fraud” distorts democratic practices, the economic entry barriers posed by voter ID laws, the trajectory of race-conscious civil rights law, the race-or-party dilemma in voting rights law, and related topics.

Professor Ellis’s current research focuses on how ideologically driven conceptions of “wrongful voters” animate the mechanisms of voter suppression. He has also written on critical legal theory and legal history.
