Kyle D. Logue researches and writes in the areas of insurance, torts, and tax. His scholarly work, which explores the ways in which law can affect the incentives of individuals and corporations, as well as the distribution of risk in society, has appeared in numerous academic journals. His articles, often co-written with other top scholars, have explored a range of questions, from how insurance serves as a form of private risk regulation, to how insurance anti-discrimination law varies across jurisdictions, to how enterprise liability can create incentives for safer consumer products. One of Professor Logue's most cited articles, published in the late 1990s, set forth the deterrence advantages of adopting a regime of enterprise liability for large tobacco companies. One of his most recent articles, from 2019, applies some of the same insights in making an argument for creating a new regime of comprehensive automaker enterprise liability. (One insight of that paper is that such a regime might have the counterintuitive effect of subsidizing the move to fully autonomous vehicles).
One of the nation's leading authorities on insurance law in particular, Professor Logue is the associate reporter for the American Law Institute's Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance and is a co-author of one of the country's leading insurance law casebooks. He has been teaching insurance law his entire career at Michigan Law. In addition to courses involving insurance and compensation system, Professor Logue teaches first-year Torts and Taxation of Individual Income. (He was a tax lawyer before joining the Michigan faculty.)
Professor Logue became the Douglas A. Kahn Collegiate Professor of Law in 2016. For 10 years before that, he held the Wade H. and Dores M. McCree Collegiate Professorship of Law. He is a graduate of Auburn University, where he was a National Harry S. Truman Scholar and an active intramural basketball player. He received his JD from Yale Law School, where he was an Olin Fellow and an articles editor for the Yale Law Journal. Before joining the Michigan Law faculty, Professor Logue worked in Atlanta at the law firm of Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan after serving one year as a law clerk to The Hon. Patrick E. Higginbotham of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
