Roger S. Clark

Board of Governors Distinguished Professor of Law. Professor Clark earned his B.A. and LL.B. in 1964, an LL.M. in 1967, and an LL.D. in 1997 at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. He earned an LL.M. in 1968 and a J.S.D. in 1972 at Columbia University School of Law. Prior to entering the law teaching profession, Professor Clark was with the New Zealand departments of justice and foreign affairs. He taught in the 1960s at Victoria University and in 1971-1972 at the University of Iowa, joining the Rutgers faculty in the fall of 1972. During his 30-plus years at Rutgers, he has found time to make visiting teaching appearances in Paris, Dublin, Miami, Graz, Salzburg, Tokyo, Rome, Beijing, and Athens, as well as in New Zealand. In 1995 and 1996, he represented the government of Samoa in the International Court of Justice in a case concerning the legality of nuclear weapons. He subsequently represented Samoa in the negotiations open to all states in the international community that resulted in the creation of a permanent International Criminal Court in The Hague. He continues to be engaged in the details of getting that court up and running. He is a member of the American Society of International Law and the American Law Institute. His teaching and scholarly interests are primarily in the areas of international law and criminal law. Among his many publications are the books: A United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (1972), The United Nations Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Program (1994), The Case against the Bomb: Marshall Islands, Samoa, and Solomon Islands before the International Court of Justice in Proceedings on the Legality of the Threat or Use of Nuclear Weapons (1996), and the coauthored work International Criminal Law: Cases and Materials (third edition, 2010), the second edition of which received the Book of the Year Award from the International Association of Penal Law. Professor Clark ran in four Boston marathons in the 1960s and 1970s, but these days competes in shorter distances in the 65-and-over age group.
