Welcome New Faculty

Paul Robinson will join Penn Law School as a Professor of Law in the Spring 2003 semester. Robinson is presently the Edna B. and Ednyfed H. Williams Professor of Law at Northwestern University and is an internationally known scholar in criminal law. A former federal prosecutor and one of the original commissioners of the United States Sentencing Commission, he has lectured widely including scholarly presentations in Australia, Belarus, Canada, England, Finland, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Scotland, and Sweden. Upon his appointment Dean Fitts stated, “His addition to the Penn faculty solidifies our standing as the best criminal law school in the country. A member of the Yale Law School Faculty indicated that Robinson is clearly the preeminent authority on substantive criminal law in the legal academy today. In the last five years Robinson has emerged as the leader of a movement within the legal academy to expand our understanding of substantive criminal law doctrine through experimental psychology. He is a model legal academic for whom I have the greatest admiration. A Harvard faculty member said that Robinson was arguably ‘the single most influential thinker in the field in the country,’ that ‘precious few’ were ‘comparable or better scholars.’”

Kermit (Kim) Roosevelt joins Penn Law School as Assistant Professor of Law after two years as an associate with Mayer, Brown & Platt in Chicago. He clerked for Justice David H. Souter for the 1999-2000 term, and for the Honorable Stephen F. Williams, U.S. Court of Appeals, DC Circuit (1997-1998). Roosevelt earned a JD from Yale (1997) where he was the Senior Editor of the Yale Law Journal and Editor of the Yale Journal on Regulation. He earned an A.B. in Philosophy summa cum laude from Harvard (1993). He has been published in the Michigan Law Review, Connecticut Law Review, and Yale Law Journal. He will teach Conflicts of Law in the Fall semester.
