Dan Rosen turned to law after a career in journalism and then made yet another turn to Japan. He received J.S.D. and LL.M. degrees from Yale Law School and a J.D. from Southern Methodist University School of Law, where he was editor-in-chief of Southwestern Law Journal (since renamed SMU Law Review). Dan served as a law clerk to Chief Judge James R. Browning of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He taught at Loyola Law School in New Orleans before relocating to Japan, where he was on the faculty of Doshisha University in Kyoto and is now at Chuo University in Tokyo. He also has been an adjunct faculty member at a number of other institutions across the country. Dan spent 2017-2018 in residence at Melbourne Law School as a Visiting Scholar. For a decade, he coordinated a summer program that was founded by former MLS Professor and ALC Director Malcolm Smith, bringing Japanese law students to study in Melbourne.
