Robert B. Ahdieh, "a graduate of Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Yale Law School, served as law clerk to Judge James R. Browning of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, before his selection for the Honor's Program in the Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

"While still in law school, Professor Ahdieh published what remains one of the seminal treatments of the constitutional transformation of post-Soviet Russia: Russia's Constitutional Revolution - Legal Consciousness and the Transition to Democracy. Ahdieh's work has also appeared in the Michigan Law Review, the NYU Law Review, and the Southern California Law Review, among other journals.

"Professor Ahdieh's scholarly interests revolve around questions of regulatory design. His particular emphasis has been the utility and function of various non-traditional modes of regulation. These include non-coercive forms of state regulation, the influence of groups on the formation and evolution of contracting and other social norms, and other mechanisms of market coordination. Game theoretic accounts of the latter patterns are of particular interest. Ahdieh has explored these issues in a variety of transactional areas, including contracts, corporate law and securities regulation, and international trade law.

"During the 2007-2008 academic year, Professor Ahdieh is a Visiting Professor and the Microsoft/LAPA Fellow at Princeton University's Program in Law and Public Affairs." [1]

In 1994 he was a Research Assistant, for Professor Richard A. Falk, and in 1992 he worked in the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Office of Zbigniew Brzezinski,Washington, D.C., 1992 - as a Research Associate. [2]
