Professor Anderson joined the College of Law faculty in 2007 after practicing law for nine years with firms in Chicago and Peoria, Illinois.

He received his J.D. from the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a member of the Order of the Coif and editor-in-chief of the California Law Review. After graduation, Professor Anderson served as a law clerk to the Honorable Walter J. Cummings of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
