Professor Rogoff 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 Universit du Maine in Le Mans, France, where he lectured in French on United Nations law and United States foreign relations law. He has taught courses such as International Law and American Constitutional Law in France and has also lectured at a law school in Italy. He enjoys working with students and serves as coordinator of international programs at the Law School. He is an elected member of the French Society of International Law.
Professor Rogoff 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, he 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. Professor Rogoff's article entitled "One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Counting: A Sixth French Republic?" appeared in the Fall 2003 issue of the Columbia Journal of European Law.
His current courses include Advanced Business Associations, Comparative Law, Conflict of Laws, European Community Law, International Law, and Legal History.
