Ed Rubin specializes in administrative law, constitutional law, and legal theory. Professor Rubin joined Vanderbilt Law School as Dean and the first John Wade-Kent Syverud Professor of Law in July 2005, serving a four-year term that ended in June 2009.  He has also served as Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California-Berkeley. 

He received his law degree from Yale University in 1979.  He served as a Law Clerk and then practiced law as an Associate in the Entertainment Law department of Paul Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison in New York.  In addition, he has served as a consultant to the People's Republic of China on administrative law, and to the Russian Federation on payments law.

His studies have also included morality and governance.  His most recent publication, Soul, Self, & Society: The New Morality & the Modern State, delves deep into the connections between the two.
