Martin Rogoff
Maine Law Foundation Professor

Martin A. Rogoff, Maine Law Foundation Professor, has published extensively in the area of international law, including several articles in French and Italian in law journals in those countries. His lifelong interest in France and the French legal system led him to spend a sabbatical leave teaching at the Faculty of Law and Economics of the Universite du Maine in Le Mans, France, where he lectured in French on United Nations law and United States foreign relations law. Professor Rogoff has taught courses such as International Law and American Constitutional Law in France and has also lectured at a law school in Italy. He is an elected member of the French Society of International Law.

Professor Rogoff teaches Comparative Law, Conflict of Laws, European Community Law, International Law, Introduction to United States Law, and Legal History. He has been at the Law School since 1972 and has served both as Professor and Associate Dean. Prior to joining the Maine Law faculty, he had been in private practice in Oakland, California and New York City, and had been an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Toledo College of Law. In addition, Professor Rogoff has been active in government, at both state and national levels, having served on Maine's Tax Study Committee and on the U.S. State Department's Advisory Committee on Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.
