Kevin Cope is serving as a Visiting Associate Professor of Law during the 2013-14 academic year, during which his research will focus on how Congress relies on foreign and international law. Professor Cope’s general research and teaching interests lie at the nexus of domestic and international law in the United States and abroad, with emphasis on courts' role in shaping rights and structural power arrangements. He is also interested in private international law, international business transactions, and transnational litigation in the United States.
During the summer of 2012, Professor Cope served as a visiting scholar at the University of Oxford. Before entering academia, he completed clerkships for Judge James S. Gwin on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Judge Milan D. Smith, Jr. on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and Judge George W. Miller on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Professor Cope also practiced government enforcement litigation law in Washington, D.C., with Skadden, Arps, where he handled trial and appellate litigation, including actions involving the World Bank, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. Constitution, and the Convention Against Torture. In law school, he served as an editor of the Northwestern University Law Review.
