Biography

Rebecca Crootof is a Clinical Lecturer in Law and Research Scholar in Law, as well as the Information Society Project Executive Director at Yale Law School. Her primary areas of research include technology law, international law, and torts; much of her work focuses on questions of when and how law can channel technological development to promote socially desirable aims. At Yale, she teaches a course on domestic and international means of regulating disruptive technologies.

Crootof has authored pieces on subjects ranging from how autonomous weapon systems may foster the rise of international tort law to the influence of non-self-executing treaties on American jurisprudence. She has published with the Pennsylvania Law Review, the Yale Journal of International Law, the Cardozo Law Review, and the Yale Law Journal; contributed to a NATO book on autonomous weapon systems; and authored pieces on Lawfare and Slate.

Crootof earned her B.A. cum laude at Pomona College, her J.D. at Yale Law School, and her PhD at Yale Law School, where she graduated as a member of the first class of PhDs in law awarded in the United States. Her dissertation, Keeping Pace: New Technology and the Evolution of International Law, examines how technology fosters change in the international legal order, both by creating a need for new regulations and by altering how sources of international governance are created and interact. Crootof has also served as a law clerk for Judge Mark R. Kravitz of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut and for Judge John M. Walker, Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She is a member of the New York Bar.

Located in New Haven, Connecticut, Yale Law School is one of the world’s premier law schools. It offers an unmatched environment of excellence and educational intimacy in the form of world renowned faculty, small classes, limitless opportunities for clinical training, and strong encouragement of public service. The Law School is small by design; its impact on the world is measured by its accomplished graduates and its ongoing scholarship and outreach through numerous centers and projects. For students, the experience is unparalleled. The faculty-student ratio supports a vast array of courses and opportunities for independent research and student-organized seminars. Students get practical training by representing real clients in clinics starting in their first year. Throughout, a spirit of collaboration reigns. All first-term courses are ungraded, and subsequent classes are graded honors/pass/low pass. Yale Law School is unique among law schools in that it produces leaders in all walks of life: distinguished deans and faculty members at law schools across the country and the world; industry CEOs and corporate counsels; founders of nongovernmental organizations and other nonprofit entities; entrepreneurs; government servants in federal, state, and local offices and the judiciary--just a few areas in which our alumni's talent and passion and dedication have made a difference. Among the School’s graduates are U.S. Presidents and Supreme Court Justices; and among its far-reaching projects, the Information Society Project and the China Center.
