Professor Ofer Raban teaches Constitutional Law, Criminal Investigation, Criminal Law, and Legal Theory. He received his B.A. from the City College of New York, his J.D. from Harvard Law School, and his D.Phil. in legal philosophy from Oxford University (where he was the recipient of the Oxford University Law Faculty Award). Professor Raban worked as a prosecutor in New York before joining academia. He taught law at Oxford University in England, the University of Detroit, and the University of Utah, before joining the University of Oregon. He is the author of numerous law review articles and book chapters dealing with the U.S. constitution and with legal theory. His first book, Modern Legal Theory and Judicial Impartiality (Routledge-Cavendish, London 2003) examined modern theories of legal interpretation and their ability to secure judicial impartiality. His latest book, "The Silent Prologue: How Judicial Philosophy Shapes Our Constitutional Rights (Lexington Books, Rowman & Littlefield MD)," examines the ways with which different judicial philosophies have influenced the scope and content of our constitutional rights and liberties. The book is due out in Fall 2016. Professor Raban lectures extensively locally and internationally, and his work has been translated into Polish, Korean, Hebrew, Chinese, and Turkish.
