Introducing Blogger Jeffrey Skopek

Jeffrey Skopek received his J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School, where he served on the Harvard Law Review as Book Reviews and Essays Chair of the Articles Committee.  He also holds a Ph.D. and M.Phil. in the History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge, where he was a Gates Scholar and Fulbright Scholar, and an A.B. in History, with distinction, from Stanford University, where he was a Truman Scholar.  Following law school, he clerked for Chief Judge Sandra L. Lynch of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. His primary research interests are in the area of law and the biosciences, which ties together his interests in environmental law, health law, and bioethics, but he also works on issues that cut across these fields and into others, such as questions about the legal functions of anonymity.
