Arthur Cockfield, HBA (Western), LL.B (Queen’s), JSM and JSD (Stanford), is a Professor at Queen’s University Faculty of Law in Kingston, Ontario, Canada where he was appointed as a Queen’s National Scholar. Prior to joining Queen’s, he worked as a lawyer in Toronto and as a law professor in San Diego. He is also a senior research fellow at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and a Fulbright Visiting Chair in Policy Studies at the University of Texas (Winter 2013).
Professor Cockfield has authored, co-authored or edited nine books and over forty journal articles and book chapters that focus on tax law as well as law and technology theory and privacy law. He is the recipient of a number of fellowships and external research grants for this research. His books include Globalization and Its Tax Discontents (University of Toronto Press, 2010) (as editor); Technology, Privacy and Justice (CIAJ, 2007) (with Lisa Austin and Patrick Molinari), and NAFTA Tax Law and Policy: Resolving the Clash between Economic and Sovereignty Interests (University of Toronto Press, 2005).
Professor Cockfield’s research in part explores tax policy issues within the US-Canada context. In addition, he studies how ongoing North American economic, technological and social integration is changing tax policies. As a member of a multidisciplinary research group at the Surveillance Studies Center based at Queen’s, he also reviews how new police and anti-terrorism surveillance technologies are interacting with privacy laws and interests. His current research focuses on the ways that Cosean transaction cost analysis can be directed at public policy issues such as taxation.
