Catherine Rogers

I am a scholar of international arbitration and professional ethics at Bocconi University, with a dual appointment as Professor of Ethics, Regulation, and the Rule of Law at Queen Mary, University of London, where I am also Co-Director of the Institute for Ethics and Regulation.

I am a Reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement of the U.S. Law of International Commercial and Investor-State Arbitration. Among other appointments, I sit on the Board of Directors of the Lagos Court of Arbitration, the International Advisory Board of the Vienna International Arbitration Centre, the Geneva Center for International Dispute Settlement (CIDS) Academic Forum on ISDS, and the Oxford University Press Investment Claims Advisory Board. I co-chaired the ICCA-Queen Mary Task Force on Third-Party Funding in International Arbitration, and I am the Founder and CEO of Arbitrator Intelligence, a global information aggregator and legal tech start-up that aims at improving arbitrator selection. I regularly engage in capacity-building activities to promote international dispute resolution and the rule of law in developing and emerging economies.

Full Professor
Research interests

My scholarship focuses on the convergence of the public and private in international adjudication, the intersection of markets and regulation in guiding professional conduct, and on the reconceptualization of the attorney as a global actor.
