Biography

James Q. Whitman is an American lawyer and Ford Foundation Professor of Comparative and Foreign Law at Yale University.

He graduated from Yale University with a B.A. and a J.D., from Columbia University with a M.A., and from the University of Chicago with a Ph.D. He was a Guggenheim Fellow. In 2015, he was awarded a doctorate honoris causa by the KU Leuven (Catholic University of Leuven)

Whitman's 2017 book, Hitler’s American Model: The United States and the Making of Nazi Race Law, received critical acclaim. Neoconservative scholar Joshua Muravchik dismissed the book as mere reductio ad Hitlerum.

In 2017, he was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AASS).
