His areas of expertise include conflicts of law and constitutional law. In addition to publishing scholarly works, he is the author of two novels. He will be discussing his book Allegiance, which was published in August. It’s a sophisticated legal thriller that plunges readers into the debate within the US government surrounding the imprisonment of thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Roosevelt is a Distinguished Research Fellow of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the American Law Institute.
