JAMES COPLAND ON
James R. Copland

James R. Copland is director of and senior fellow with the Manhattan Institute’s Center for Legal Policy, which seeks to develop and communicate novel, sound ideas on how to improve the civil- and criminal-justice systems. Copland has testified before the U.S. Congress and has authored many policy white papers, book chapters, and articles in journals, including the Harvard Business Law Review and Yale Journal on Regulation, as well as opinion pieces in newspapers including the Wall Street Journal, National Law Journal, and USA Today. He speaks regularly on civil and criminal-justice issues; has made hundreds of media appearances in outlets including PBS, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg, C-Span, and NPR; and is frequently cited in news articles in periodicals such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Economist, and Forbes. In both 2011 and 2012, Copland was named to the National Association of Corporate Directors’ Directorship 100 list, designating the individuals most influential over U.S. corporate governance.

Prior to joining the Manhattan Institute, Copland was a management consultant with McKinsey and Company in New York. He earlier served as a law clerk for Ralph K. Winter on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. He has been a director of two privately held manufacturing companies since 1997 and has served on many public and nonprofit boards. Copland received JD and MBA degrees from Yale, where he was an Olin Fellow in Law and Economics; an MSc in the politics of the world economy from the London School of Economics; and a BA in economics with highest distinction and highest honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a Morehead Scholar.
