About Jim Rossi

Jim Rossi is a professor of Law at Vanderbilt University who is recognized for his research on administrative and energy law topics. His recent articles focus on the role of public utility doctrines and principles in modern energy markets, as well as federalism and other shared jurisdictional issues affecting agency regulation. His books include Energy, Economics and the Environment (4th edition, Foundation Press, 2015, with Joel Eisen, Emily Hammond, David Spence, Jacqueline Weaver and Hannah Wiseman); Regulatory Bargaining and Public Law (Cambridge University Press, 2005); and an edited collection of essays, Dual Enforcement of Constitutional Norms: The New Frontier of State Constitutionalism (Oxford University Press, 2010, with James Gardner). Professor Rossi served as a consultant to the Administrative Conference of the United States' Committee on Collaborative Governance project on Improving Coordination of Related Agency Responsibilities, which resulted in a set of recommendations adopted by the conference on how agencies should coordinate. Before joining Vanderbilt's law faculty, he was the Harry M. Walborsky Professor and associate dean for research at Florida State University College of Law. Professor Rossi has also taught as a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, the University of Texas School of Law and the University of North Carolina School of Law.
