Prof. Rozenshtein Selected to Serve on the Council on Foreign Relations

Professor Alan Rozenshtein has just been selected to serve a five-year term on the Council on Foreign Relations as part of program for early-career professionals.

The Stephen M. Kellen Term Member Program provides young professionals in government, media, nongovernmental organizations, law, business, finance, and academia the opportunity to participate in a sustained conversation on international affairs and U.S. foreign policy.

The program allows younger members to interact with seasoned foreign policy experts and participate in a wide variety of events designed especially for them. Each year, a new class of term members between the ages of 30 and 36 is elected to serve a fixed five-year membership term.

In addition to taking part in a full range of CFR activities, term members also enjoy an array of special events with high-profile speakers, including an annual term member conference, roundtables, workshops, trips to financial and governmental institutions across the country, and a week-long study trip abroad every two years.

Rozenshtein joined the Law School as a visiting professor in 2017 and in summer 2019 continued as an associate professor of law. He is a senior editor at Lawfare, a member of the Scholars Strategy Network, and a visiting faculty fellow at the University of Nebraska College of Law. He was previously an affiliate with the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

From Oct. 2014 to April 2017, he served as an attorney advisor in the Office of Law and Policy in the National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where his work focused on operational, legal, and policy issues relating to cybersecurity and foreign intelligence. From October 2016 to April 2017, he served as a special assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland. During this time he taught cybersecurity at Georgetown Law.

Before joining the Justice Department, Professor Rozenshtein clerked for Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. While attending Harvard Law School, he was a Heyman Fellow, served as articles editor for the Harvard Law Review, and was a contributor to Lawfare. Prior to attending law school, he studied philosophy at Balliol College, University of Oxford.
