Thomas Hogan Joins the Manhattan Institute as Adjunct Fellow

May 12, 2022

NEW YORK, NY – The Manhattan Institute is pleased to welcome Thomas Hogan as an adjunct fellow. As part of the Institute’s Policing and Public Safety Initiative, Hogan’s scholarly pursuits will address the criminal-justice system, public safety, terrorism, and politics, with a special focus on prosecutorial policies. 

Prior to joining the Manhattan Institute, Hogan served most recently as the elected Chester County District Attorney in Pennsylvania, a county with over 500,000 citizens. He was also chair of the Liberty Mid-Atlantic HIDTA group, coordinating drug-law enforcement for state and local organizations across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. He previously served as a prosecutor for the United States Department of Justice, with a focus on terrorism, violent crime, drug trafficking, and political corruption. He has also worked with elected officials at the federal, state, and local level on drafting legislation and addressing critical policy issues. In between his stints in public service, Hogan has worked in private practice at a major international law firm and litigation boutique, representing Fortune 500 companies and individuals in complex civil litigation and criminal investigations. 

Hogan received his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College and his legal degree from the University of Virginia School of Law. While practicing law, he also received a Master of Science degree in criminology from the University of Pennsylvania, concentrating on statistical issues and data science in the criminal-justice system. He has taught lawyers, law students, and graduate students from multiple disciplines on issues including criminal procedure, trial advocacy, ethics, officer-involved shootings, and statistical problems. 

Hogan has published frequently in the Manhattan Institute’s urban policy magazine, City Journal, including a new piece forthcoming in the spring issue which explores bioterrorism implications from the Covid-19 pandemic. Another pair of recent articles identifies the “Five Best Prosecutors in America” and the “Five Worst Prosecutors in America,” drawing attention to the qualities in prosecutors that produce public safety and justice, and the flaws that produce violence and chaos. He discusses his findings in a new episode of City Journal’s 10 Blocks podcast, available today. In addition, his op-eds have appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer, the New York PostRealClearPolitics, and a range of other publications, and he has written numerous articles for academic and professional journals. 

“Tom has been an incredible asset as a contributor,” said Hannah E. Meyers, director of policing and public safety. “He understands the dynamics of prosecution, law enforcement, and the criminal mindset like no one else and can convey these concepts to a lay audience. He is also dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable Americans, previously as a public servant and now as a scholar. We are very excited to work with Tom more closely and to see his upcoming publications and projects come to fruition.”
