Biography

Professor Infranca is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he received his B.A. in the Program of Liberal Studies and later returned for an M.T.S. in Moral Theology, and of New York University School of Law, where he served as an editor of the New York University Law Review. Following law school, Professor Infranca served as a law clerk to Judge Berle Schiller, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and Judge Julio Fuentes, United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

 

Most recently, Professor Infranca worked as a legal fellow at the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy, where he focused on land use regulation and affordable housing policy. He also taught as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Urban Planning at New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. After college and during graduate school, Professor Infranca worked with a number of homeless services organizations, as a case manager for refugees, and as the director of a service learning program in Mexico.

 

Professor Infranca's scholarship focuses on land use regulation, affordable housing policy, property theory, and law and religion. His current research projects examine land use and other regulatory barriers to the development of new forms of housing, the normative considerations that should inform how regulations allocate public benefits and other resources, and the division of responsibility for land use decision making between government and private entities.
