Stuart Green is a Distinguished Professor of Law at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. A graduate of Tufts University and the Yale Law School, he has also taught or been a visiting fellow at the Universities of Glasgow, Melbourne, Michigan, and Tel Aviv, the Australian National University, the London School of Economics, and Louisiana State.

Green’s work includes Criminalizing Sex: A Unified Liberal Theory (OUP, 2020); Thirteen Ways to Steal a Bicycle: Theft Law in the Information Age (HUP, 2012); Philosophical Foundations of Criminal Law (co-edited with Antony Duff) (OUP, 2011); Lying, Cheating, and Stealing: A Moral Theory of White Collar Crime (OUP, 2006); and Defining Crimes: Essays on the Special Part of the Criminal Law (co-edited with Duff) (OUP, 2005).

He is currently working on two new books. One is an "advanced introduction" to criminal law theory. The other, on the law of homicide, will be the fourth (and likely final) volume of the series of books he has been writing on the conceptual and normative underpinnings of the criminal law’s special part.
