Stuart P. Green
Distinguished Professor of Law and Nathan L. Jacobs Scholar
Professor Green received a B.A. in philosophy from Tufts University and a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was a notes editor of the Yale Law Journal. After law school, he clerked for Judge Pamela Ann Rymer of the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Los Angeles and then served as an associate with the law firm of Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering in Washington, DC. Prior to joining the Rutgers faculty, Green taught at the Louisiana State University Law School.
Green’s books – which have been translated, in whole or in part, into Spanish, Italian, Russian, Turkish, and Korean – include the award-winning book Lying, Cheating, and Stealing: A Moral Theory of White Collar Crime (2006), Thirteen Ways to Steal a Bicycle: Theft Law in the Information Age (2012), and Philosophical Foundations of Criminal Law (co-edited with Antony Duff) (2011). He is currently working on a new book, titled Criminalizing Sex, which will offer a “unified” theory of the non-consensual and consensual sexual offenses.
The recipient of fellowships from the Leverhulme Trust and U.S.-U.K. Fulbright Commission, Green has served as a visiting professor or visiting fellow at the Universities of Oxford, Michigan, Melbourne, and Glasgow, Tel Aviv, and at the Australian National University. He will spend a total of six months during 2016 and 2017 as a visiting professor at the London School of Economics.
Professor Green is a founding co-editor of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, a former consultant to the Law Commission for England and Wales, and a frequent media commentator on issues in criminal law and ethics.
