Visiting Assistant Professor of Law
B.S., University of Vermont
J.D., Northwestern University
Professor Luttrell teaches Environmental Law, Health Law, Evidence, and Public Health Law. Prior to visiting at FIU, she was in private practice in Los Angeles, where her work included representing hospitals in complex civil litigation in state and federal court. Earlier in her career, she served as Legislative Counsel for Regulatory Affairs at Public Citizen’s Congress Watch.
Professor Luttrell received a J.D., cum laude, from Northwestern University, where she graduated with Order of the Coif honors, and a B.S. from the University of Vermont’s School of Environment and Natural Resources.
Her scholarship considers the appropriate use of microeconomic principles in legal decision-making; the ways decision-makers actually use available evidence, in the absence of perfect information; and the integration of idealistic notions of what the law can and should do with the pragmatic realities of the world that actually exists.
