Berman book subject of Temple roundtable

October 07, 2010

A forthcoming book by Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law Dean Paul Schiff Berman, Law Beyond Borders: Jurisprudence for a Hybrid World, was the subject of Temple University’s Beasley School of Law’s annual International Law Roundtable on Friday, Oct. 8.

The day-long roundtable included a small group of distinguished scholars drawn from law, international relations and political economy, who prepared short reaction papers that were circulated prior to the workshop.

Berman’s scholarship focuses on the intersection of international law, conflict of laws, cyberspace law, and the cultural analysis of law. Before arriving at ASU, Berman was the Jesse Root Professor of Law at the University of Connecticut School of Law. Berman earned his A.B., summa cum laude, from Princeton University in 1988 and his J.D. in 1995 from New York University School of Law, where he served as Managing Editor of the NYU Law Review.

He has served as law clerk to then Chief Judge Harry T. Edwards, of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and for Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, of the United States Supreme Court. Prior to entering law school, Dean Berman was a professional theater director in New York City and Artistic Director of Spin Theater. He was also Administrative Director of The Wooster Group and of Richard Foreman's Ontological-Hysteric Theatre at St. Mark's Church.
