At the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School, our faculty are committed to a cross-disciplinary approach to legal education, which connects the law with other fields of study and the academy to the global legal landscape. Two-thirds of Penn Law’s standing faculty hold advanced degrees in addition to the JD, and approximately half hold secondary appointments at Penn’s other professional schools or graduate departments. As leaders in the law and their respective fields, my colleagues engage with critical facets of our society: racial justice, equity and inclusion, health law, regulatory law, constitutional law, criminal justice, corporate and antitrust law, intellectual property, and technology. Our faculty’s cross-disciplinary approach to scholarship allows them to draw from an array of diverse fields and methodologies to confront the complex legal problems facing the world today. Incorporating traditional legal scholarship, archival study, and data-driven research, their cutting-edge scholarship has won numerous national, regional, and university awards. And because of their prolific and groundbreaking work, our faculty members are regularly sought out by national and international policy makers as experts in their fields. In addition, our faculty are deeply committed to their teaching and to the Law School community. Faculty members advise and mentor students, collaborate on scholarship, and engage with important issues of the day. Because of the supportive, collegial atmosphere at the Law School, faculty and students are able to discuss sensitive issues in a civil and productive manner. This publication showcases our faculty members’ wide range of interests, their distinguished accomplishments, and their significant impact on scholarship and policy. In their research and teaching, our faculty members embrace public service, global leadership, and the value of reaching across intellectual boundaries to integrate the methods and frameworks of other disciplines. Through their critical work at the Law School, they expand the realm of our knowledge and advance the legal profession. With best regards,

Conflict over cultural heritage has increasingly become a standard part of war. Today, systematic exploitation, manipulation, attacks, and destruction of cultural heritage by state and non-state actors form part of most violent conflicts across the world. Such acts are often intentional and based on well-planned strategies for inflicting harm on groups of people and communities. With this increasing awareness of the role cultural heritage plays in war, scholars and practitioners have progressed from seeing conflict-related destruction of cultural heritage as a cultural tragedy to understanding it as a vital national security issue. There is also a shift from the desire to protect cultural property for its own sake to viewing its protection as connected to broader agendas of peace and security. Concerns about cultural heritage have thus migrated beyond the cultural sphere to worries about the protection of civilians, the financing of terrorism, societal resilience, post-conflict reconciliation, hybrid warfare, and the geopolitics of territorial conflicts. This volume seeks to deepen public understanding of the evolving nexus between cultural heritage and security in the twenty-first century. Drawing on a variety of disciplines and perspectives, the chapters in this volume examine a complex set of relationships between the deliberate destruction and misuse of cultural heritage in times of conflict, on the one hand, and basic societal values, legal principles, and national security, on the other.

David S. Abrams Professor of Law, Business Economics, and Public Policy
David S. Abrams is one of the leading young economists working in empirical law and economics. His work strives to understand and measure how individuals respond to incentives in various legal contexts. In his work on intellectual property law, he has investigated the expected impact of the America Invents Act, examined the effect of patent duration on innovation, and used natural language processing to establish more reliable measures of patent value. In his latest empirical work he has shown that long-held views on patent value and citations do not hold and introduced a new model of innovation to account for the findings. He has also done substantial work in criminal justice, including investigating whether longer sentences deter crime, how defendant race impacts judicial decisions, to what extent attorney skill affects case outcomes, and how much individuals value freedom. His interests also include law and health economics, labor economics, and corporate finance. His work has appeared in top peer-reviewed journals and law reviews, including the Stanford Law Review, University of Chicago Law Review, University of Pennsylvania Law Review, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, and Journal of Legal Studies.

Award-winning teacher Mitch Berman focuses on American constitutional law and theory, philosophy of criminal law, general jurisprudence, and philosophy of sport. His contributions include a novel nonoriginalist theory of American constitutional interpretation, a new positivist account of legal content, and an original retributivist justification for criminal punishment. He also claims to have solved the paradox of blackmail, the mystery of unconstitutional conditions, and the age-old puzzle of whether referees should ‘swallow the whistle’ in crunch time. Berman’s work appears or is forthcoming in the leading peer-reviewed journals in his fields, including Ethics, Philosophy & Phenomenological Research, Oxford Journal of Legal Studies, Legal Theory; Law & Philosophy, Criminal Law & Philosophy, and Journal of Philosophy of Sport; in prominent student-edited law reviews including University of Pennsylvania Law Review, University of Chicago Law Review, Michigan Law Review, California Law Review, Texas Law Review, Notre Dame Law Review, Virginia Law Review, NYU Law Review, Duke Law Journal, and Georgetown Law Journal; and in edited volumes published by Oxford, Cambridge, and Routledge. Berman’s co-authored 2021 textbook, The Jurisprudence of Sport: Sports and Games as Legal Systems, inaugurates a new field of legal-theoretic inquiry and pedagogy, one that introduces students to legal concepts and problematics through the study of rules and practices in sport. selected positions.

William Ewald Professor of Law and Philosophy
William Ewald earned his doctorate in mathematical logic at Oxford University before attending Harvard Law School. Ever since, he has retained both interests. In the history and philosophy of mathematics, he translated many foundational documents in his widely used source book, From Kant to Hilbert (Oxford, 1996). The discovery in Göttingen of a large collection of unpublished notebooks of David Hilbert, the greatest mathematician of the twentieth century, led to a large project of editing and commenting on the development of Hilbert’s thought: three large volumes (of a projected six) have so far appeared. This work has led to numerous awards including the LLM teaching award in 2020. He is an internationally recognized scholar in legal philosophy and comparative law. His influential, monograph-length article on the philosophical foundations of comparative law, “What Was it Like to Try a Rat?” has been translated into Ukrainian and Chinese. The broad strategy is to combine the historical study of legal systems with comparative law and with legal philosophy. His work in comparative law led him to study James Wilson, the first professor of law at Penn. Wilson was a signer of the Constitution, and Ewald established that he was considerably more important than had previously been recognized. He is currently engaged in writing a full intellectual biography, and in 2018 was invited to give the annual historical lecture reporting on this research at the U.S. Supreme Court. selected positions.

David Hoffman William A. Schnader Professor of Law; Deputy Dean
Dave Hoffman is a widely cited scholar who focuses his research and teaching on contract law. His work is typically interdisciplinary, built through collaboration with co-authors from a variety of fields. One recent set of papers examined the technical and legal aspects of transactions occurring on and through blockchains. Other work, using qualitative and experimental methods, focuses on how individuals experience contracting online, and what extra-legal goals firms might seek to accomplish using the “terms and conditions.” He has also engaged in the national conversation sparked by the #metoo movement, publishing a paper with a Penn Law student that argues that nondisclosure clauses in employment contracts violate public policy. His current projects include the building and analysis of a dataset consisting of hundreds of thousands of Philadelphia residential leases.
Hoffman was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, where he currently lives with his wife and two young children. He is a frequently sought after commentator on issues involving contract law and an active user of Twitter. He joined the Law School faculty in 2017 after spending the first 12 years of his career at Temple Law School. At Penn, Hoffman was honored with the Harvey Levin Memorial teaching award in 2018, and he previously won Temple’s George P. Williams Memorial Award for the Outstanding Professor of the Year (2013).

Leo Katz’s work focuses on criminal law and legal theory more generally. By connecting criminal law, moral philosophy, and the theory of social choice, he tries to shed light on some of the most basic building block notions of the law — coercion, deception, consent, and the use and abuse of legal stratagems, among others. Professor Katz is the author of several books: Bad Acts and Guilty Minds: Conundrums of the Criminal Law (Chicago, 1987); Ill-Gotten Gains: Evasion, Blackmail, Fraud and Kindred Puzzles of the Law (Chicago, 1996); and Why the Law Is So Perverse (Chicago, 2011). Together with Stephen J. Morse and Michael Moore, he edited Foundations of the Criminal Law (Oxford, 1999). In 2020, Katz received the Robert A. Gorman Award for Excellence in Teaching for his exceptional work migrating his Criminal Law course to the necessarily online, remote format. He has taught at the Law School since 1991, and prior to that, has held positions around the world, including visiting scholar and fellowship positions at Wissenschaftskolleg, Berlin; the Australian National University; University of California, Berkeley; Goethe Universität Frankfurt; and University of Michigan Law School.

Michael S. Knoll is the author of more than 60 articles, book chapters, and other pieces. His academic writings have been published in student-edited law reviews, including the law reviews of Harvard, Yale and Stanford, and peer-reviewed and professional journals, including the Journal of Finance, Journal of Law and Economics, and Tax Law Review. He has also published editorials in the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post. His research focuses on the economic incentives created by legal rules and how economics can be used to improve legal doctrine. In recent years, Knoll’s scholarship has focused on taxation, especially cross-border taxation. In “What is Tax Discrimination?,” Knoll and his co-author argue that the prohibition against tax discrimination embodied in the European Union’s free movement rights and the dormant Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution can be best understood as calling for a level playing field between interstate and intrastate commerce, and they provide a framework that courts can use to ascertain whether a state tax discriminates against interstate commerce. This argument formed the basis Knoll and his co-author’s amicus brief in Wynne v. Comptroller of Maryland, which was cited by the Supreme Court majority multiple times in its 2015 decision. Knoll and his co-author are also working on a book on tax discrimination in the E.U. and the U.S.

Jennifer Rothman is nationally recognized for her scholarship in the field of intellectual property law. She is the leading expert on the right of publicity, and is frequently sought after to consult on legislation, high-profile litigation, and the development of creative projects.
In addition to focusing on conflicts between intellectual property rights and other constitutionally-protected rights, such as the freedom of speech, her scholarship also explores the intersections of tort and property law, particularly in the context of the right of publicity, copyright, and trademark and unfair competition law. Her current research focuses on the ways intellectual property law is employed to turn people into a form of property, as well as how it regulates the production and content of expression. Her recent book, The Right of Publicity: Privacy Reimagined for a Public World, published by Harvard University Press, addresses some of these concerns in what has been described as the “definitive biography of the right of publicity.” Rothman’s essays and articles regularly appear in top law reviews and journals. Her most recent article, The First Amendment and the Right(s) of Publicity, appears in the Yale Law Journal.
Torts, Restitution, and Insurance Law
She also created Rothman’s Roadmap to the Right of Publicity, an online resource, located at www. rightofpublicityroadmap.com, that provides a comprehensive analysis of state right of publicity laws and commentary on recent cases and legislation. Rothman is an elected member of the American Law Institute and an adviser on the Restatement of the Law (Third) of Torts: Defamation and Privacy. selected positions. Penn Law – Nicholas F.

Theodore W. Ruger brings fresh insight to the study of some of the oldest questions of American law — namely the theoretical justifications for, and empirical contours of, the application of judicial authority. In exploring these issues, Ruger supplements traditional legal analysis with the methods of other disciplines, including history and political science.
His work has appeared in the Harvard Law Review, the Columbia Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law, the Northwestern Law Review, and as the centerpiece of a symposium in Perspectives on Politics, a leading peer-reviewed political science journal.
Food and Drug Law
In addition to his interests in constitutional law and legislation, Ruger also teaches and writes in the area of health law and pharmaceutical regulation. His current research in that field draws on his broader work on judicial power and constitutionalism and addresses the manner in which American legal institutions — including the U.S. Supreme Court — have shaped the field of health law over the past two centuries.

Chris William Sanchirico Samuel A. Blank Professor of Law, Business, and Public Policy; Co-Director, Center for Tax Law and Policy
Chris William Sanchirico’s work spans several fields of legal scholarship but is chiefly focused on tax law and policy. His work on taxation employs a range of methodologies. His recent research on the tax treatment of private equity funds, for instance, analyzes subtle aspects of tax law doctrine. His study of work patterns and income tax progressivity applies sophisticated statistical methods to complex data sets. And his contributions to the theory of optimal taxation use mathematical models to help refine policy discourse. His work on evidentiary procedure is known for its creativity and focus on important issues that have been largely neglected in the literature. He argues in one recent article that the law makes good use of individuals’ bounded ability to process information. The insincere witness’s cognitive limitations, for example, help make cross-examination effective. In other research he argues that structural features of evidentiary process, such as those that exploit cognitive limitations, are often a better way of dealing with evidentiary misdeeds than attempting to penalize perjury or obstruction of justice.

Stephanos Bibas, U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Senior Fellow
Stephanos Bibas, Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, studies the powers and incentives that shape how prosecutors, defense counsel, defendants, and judges behave in the real world of guilty pleas. His 2004 paper, “Plea Bargaining Outside the Shadow of Trial” (Harvard Law Review), explored the agency costs, structural forces, and psychological biases that cause plea bargaining to deviate from expected trial outcomes. He also studies the divorce between criminal procedure’s focus on efficiency and criminal law’s interest in healing victims, defendants, and communities. His book The Machinery of Criminal Justice (Oxford, 2012) explains how criminal justice should do more to encourage acceptance of responsibility, remorse, apology, and forgiveness. As Director of the Law School’s Supreme Court Clinic, Bibas litigated a wide range of Supreme Court cases. He and his co-counsel won a landmark victory in Padilla v. Kentucky in 2010, persuading the Court to recognize the right of noncitizen defendants to accurate information about deportation before they plead guilty. His academic work played a central role in the Supreme Court’s landmark case of Blakely v. Washington.
