Professor Henderson joined the law faculty in 2011 after teaching elsewhere for nine years. In 2013, he was named the outstanding faculty member by the students, and in 2014, he received the VPR Award for Outstanding Research Impact. He teaches, writes, and lectures in the areas of Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Privacy Law, and Computer Crime. (In a former life he taught Intellectual Property, most of which he loved but much of which he has forgotten.)
Henderson's research was cited by the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board in finding certain NSA surveillance illegal and possibly unconstitutional (report here) and in recent opinions regarding law enforcement access to cell site location information (Supreme Court of Wisconsin, Supreme Court of Wisconsin, Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts). He regularly speaks in professional and scholarly contexts, including presentations at Yale, NYU, Penn, Berkeley, Northwestern, Alberta, Minnesota, GW, UNC, and Colorado, and he has taught in Batumi, Georgia, in a summer program hosted by that nation's Constitutional Court. He is co-editor of the forthcoming Cambridge Handbook of Surveillance Law.
Henderson served as Reporter for the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Standards on Law Enforcement Access to Third Party Records (available here), and is cofounder and co-webmaster of the Crimprof Multipedia, an online multimedia pedagogical resource for criminal law and procedure professors. Though stymied for now by a lack of financing, he has spent considerable time working on a revolutionary legal textbook platform appropriate to the twenty-first century.
Henderson obtained a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Davis where, among other honors, he received the College of Engineering Medal for most outstanding graduating student and received possibly the highest marks ever (the dean thought it so but this was in the day before big data knew all such things). He received a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he co-founded the Yale Law and Technology Society.
Following law school, Professor Henderson clerked for the Honorable Jerry E. Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He then practiced with Vinson & Elkins and Fish & Richardson, concentrating on intellectual property, criminal law, and the intersections thereof. He is admitted to practice in Texas and Pennsylvania.
Professor Hendeson has six reasons for living, five of whom perform together as SquishBAND (and a seventh if you count a large dog who outweighs the rest).
