Steven A. Hetcher's research focuses on the role of social norms in the law. In particular, he challenges the first-generation economic account of various substantive areas within the regulatory state apparatus such as copyright, tort, and privacy law. The larger substantive goal is to develop a norms-based jurisprudence of intellectual property. Hetcher joined the Vanderbilt law faculty in 1998 after practicing at Arnold & Porter in Washington, D.C.
