A noted constitutional law scholar, Professor Williams has written numerous articles in major journals throughout the country. He is a popular lecturer on Native American people and on the Second Amendment. Winner of the Leon Wallace Teaching Award, Professor Williams teaches Constitutional Law and Native American Law.

In recent years, his research has focused on two aspects of constitutional law—the right of Native American tribes to self-government within the American constitutional system, and the alleged constitutional right of the people to keep and bear arms in order to make revolution against government. These two seemingly unrelated topics raise the common theme of examining the possibility of popular government outside the normal channels of state and federal elections, and more specifically the claimed right of an "organic" people to resist the encroachment of an "alien" government.

Regarded as an insightful teacher and scholar, Professor Williams believes that the best lawyers do not conduct legal analysis in a vacuum. "We must train our students to think and argue clearly and critically," she says. "But at the same time, we must encourage them to bring their own values and experiences to bear on the legal issues they are studying. Law is a mirror in which we can read our character as a society, both as it presently exists and as we would ideally like it to be."

Professor Williams teaches Property, Family Law, First Amendment Law, AIDS and the Law, and Feminist Legal Theory.
