July 1, Jeff Cooper took on his new role as the associate dean of research and faculty development at Quinnipiac University’s School of Law. He has been teaching at the law school since 2003. Cooper sees himself as an agent for the faculty and aims to “support them to make sure faculty scholarship gets all the attention it deserves.”
Current law school faculty have published a number of hard-hitting works that have found their way into prestigious law journals. Topics range from Professor John Thomas’s articles dealing with immigration law to Professor Jennifer Herbst’s research on health law and government programs. For Cooper, the ideal is for faculty to publish with an eye toward making a positive impact on judicial and academic policies.
Cooper has himself published a number of lauded works. His examinations concerning estate taxation and wealth transfer have been published in highly recognizable and noteworthy journals, and these works have been oft referenced in publications like Forbes.
