ASU law professor's zombie article mentioned in Jotwell law journal


August 15, 2013

Professor Adam Chodorow’s article, “Death and Taxes and Zombies,” was recently reviewed by Alyssa DiRusso for Jotwell law journal.

The article, which explores the hypothetical legal ramifications of a zombie apocalypse, was originally written for and published by the Iowa Law Review in May 2012.

“The article leads the reader through a series of ordinary tax and legal scenarios and applies them to extraordinary circumstances,” DiRusso writes. “How do states address the question of what it means to be legally dead?”

“The U.S. stands on the brink of financial disaster, and Congress has done nothing but bicker,” Chodorow writes. “Of course, I refer to the coming day when the undead walk the earth, feasting on the living.”
