About

Rosen_Mark_180pxI am a graduate of Yale College and Harvard Law School. After serving as an Articles Editor for the Harvard Law Review, I clerked on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and practiced law in Boston, where I spent most of my time on complex litigation and appeals.

I currently am a tenured professor at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. I’ve also had academic appointments at the University of Chicago Law School, the University of Minnesota Law School, and the Northwestern School of Law. My scholarship has appeared in the Harvard Law Review, the University of Illinois Law Review, the Virginia Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, the Texas Law Review, the Northwestern University Law Review, the Minnesota Law Review, The University of Chicago Law Review, and the UCLA Law Review, the Virginia Journal of International Law, and the William & Mary Law Review, among many other academic journals. One of my articles received a national academic award.

I have testified before Congress and state legislatures concerning the constitutionality of pending legislation, and have given advice to all branches of state governments, including a former governor, legislators, and attorneys-general. I also make frequent public appearances in a wide array of fora and media, including newspapers and television.

Areas of Expertise

My expertise is concentrated in the fields of constitutional law, state and local government law, conflicts of law, election law, federal and international jurisdiction, and civil procedure. I have published on a broad array of topics in these fields. Because my areas of specialty are implicated whenever governmental actions are challenged or defended, I can be of use across many substantive fields. For example, I have advised clients concerning dairy regulations, telecommunications law, insurance, education law, pension law, tobacco litigation, international adoptions, state and federal constitutional law, zoning, and many other matters of local government law.

Consulting Experience

I have provided consulting services for a wide array of clients, including corporations, public utilities, regulated industries, foreign nationals, lawyers, Congress, all levels of state government, municipalities, and Native American tribes. I have provided a wide array of services, including: writing memoranda of law and briefs (ranging from discrete sections of a brief to taking charge of entire briefs), arguing before courts and agencies, strategizing at the start of appeals, mooting before oral argument, providing expert testimony, lobbying legislatures and administrative agencies, and advising in the drafting of legislation and standard form contracts.

Samples: Briefs and Expert Affidavit

You can find here two sample briefs and an expert affidavit. The first sample is an amicus curiae brief that addresses constitutional issues. The second is an excerpt from an appellate brief concerning the Act of State Doctrine and choice-of-law. The expert affidavit concerns a question of civil procedure.
