Kermit Roosevelt Talk

The Rutgers chapter of the American Constitution Society is hosting author and UPenn Law Professor Kermit Roosevelt in the Nathan Baker Trial Courtroom. His areas of expertise include conflicts of law and constitutional law. In addition to publishing scholarly works, he is the author of two novels. He will be discussing his book Allegiance, which was published in August. It’s a sophisticated legal thriller that plunges readers into the debate within the US government surrounding the imprisonment of thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Roosevelt is a Distinguished Research Fellow of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the American Law Institute. In November 2014, the American Law Institute announced that Roosevelt had been selected as the Reporter for the Third Restatement of Conflict of Laws. He is a great-grandson of Theodore Roosevelt and the fifth cousin four-times removed of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
