Professor Brad Roth takes international reputation to The University of Copenhagen, Denmark

For two months during the summer of 2017, Dr. Brad R. Roth, Professor of Political Science and Law, was a Visiting Scholar at the Centre of Excellence for International Courts, University of Copenhagen (Denmark), May 15-July 15.

The Danish National Research Foundation's Centre of Excellence for International Courts -- referred to as "iCourts" -- is a research center dedicated to the study of international courts, their role in a globalizing legal order and their impact on politics and society.

iCourts opened in March 2012 as a center of excellence funded by a large grant from the Danish National Research Foundation (for the period 2012-18). Furthermore, it receives substantial support from the Sapere Aude program of the Danish Research Council and EURECO, a research excellence program at the University of Copenhagen. The Centre's research efforts aim at creating groundbreaking results within the field of inquiry through a series of closely integrated interdisciplinary research projects.

Professor Roth is one of a small number of academics whose training and research span disciplines located in distinctly different colleges.  Dr. Roth received his B.A. in Political Science from Swarthmore, his J.D. from Harvard Law, his LL. N. in International and Foreign Law from Columbia, and his Ph.D. in the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program from the University of California, Berkeley.  In addition to his positions at Wayne State University, Dr. Roth has taught at the U.C. Berkeley School of Law, is a licensed member of the Bar in New Jersey and Washington, DC, and holds ancillary licenses for the U.S. District Court of New Jersey, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Through his work, he has established an international reputation in the areas of sovereignty, morality, and international law.  Dr. Roth's current research includes a project on revisiting conceptual foundations of international criminal justice.
