Catherine A. Rogers is a scholar of international arbitration and professional ethics at Penn State Law, with a dual appointment as Professor of Ethics, Regulation, and the Rule of Law at Queen Mary, University of London, where she is also Co-Director of the Institute for Ethics and Regulation. Her scholarship focuses on the convergence of the public and private in international adjudication, the intersection of markets and regulation in guiding professional conduct, and on the reconceptualization of the attorney as a global actor. Professor Rogers teaches, lectures, and publishes on these topics around the world, including as an invited participant at two Stanford-Yale Junior Faculty Fora.
Professor Rogers is a Reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement of the U.S. Law of International Commercial Arbitration. Among other appointments, she sits on the Board of Directors of the Lagos Court of Arbitration, the International Advisory Board of the Vienna International Arbitration Center, the Geneva Center for International Dispute Settlement (CIDS) Academic Forum on ISDS, and Oxford University Press’ Investment Claims Advisory Board. Professor Rogers co-chairs—together with William W. “Rusty” Park and Stavros Brekoulakis—the ICCA-Queen Mary Task Force on Third-Party Funding in International Arbitration, and is the founder of Arbitrator Intelligence, a non-profit organization developing informational resources to increase transparency, fairness and accountability in the arbitrator selection process. Professor Rogers also regularly engages in capacity-building activities to promote international dispute resolution and the rule of law in developing and emerging economies.
Before entering academia, Professor Rogers clerked for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced international litigation and arbitration in New York, Hong Kong, and San Francisco.
