After herself graduating from Georgetown Law, Dean Hunter specialized in constitutional and civil rights law as a member of the national legal staff of the American Civil Liberties Union in New York.

Professor Light’s research examines issues at the intersection of environmental law, corporate sustainability, and business innovation. Her articles have addressed the regulatory implications of the rise of transportation platforms like Uber and Lyft; how business innovation, such as Microsoft’s adoption of a private carbon fee, can be a form of private environmental governance; and the U.S. military’s role in stimulating private technological innovation to reduce fossil fuel use in what Light has called The Military-Environmental Complex.  Her articles have appeared in and are forthcoming in the Stanford Law Review, the Duke Law Journal, the UCLA Law Review, the Vanderbilt Law Review, and the Emory Law Journal, among others.
