Rogers’ research considers how institutions interact in separation-of-power systems with a focus on the role of courts in those systems. As such, it examines how courts and other institutions mutually construct their decision-making environment and the reciprocal influence that the institutions have on each other. Other aspects of this focus include studies of bicameral interaction in state legislatures and implications of judicial review for state economic policies.
James R. Rogers is editor of the Journal of Theoretical Politics, and is currently working on a book, States & Nation: Rightly Dividing Political Authority.
Dr. Rogers teaches graduate courses in political institutions and public administration, as well as in game theory and mathematical modeling. He teaches undergraduate courses in constitutional law, comparative state constitutions, law and legislation, and research methods.
