For the fall 2018 semester, Professor Rosenblum is a Wainwright Fellow at the Faculty of Law of McGill University in Montréal, Québec.

Professor Darren Rosenblum joined the Pace Law faculty in 2004, and became a full professor in 2009. He teaches Contracts, Corporations and International Business Transactions, and serves as the Director of the Business Law Concentration, Director of Commercial and Private International Law Programs and Faculty Advisor of the Institute for International and Commercial Law. His scholarship focuses on corporate governance, in particular on remedies for sex inequality.

Professor Rosenblum clerked in the U.S. District Court of Puerto Rico from 1996-1998 and then practiced international arbitration at Clifford Chance and Skadden, Arps, Slate Meagher and Flom in their New York offices from 1998-2004. He represented primarily non-U.S. clients in multilingual arbitration and litigation matters. Professor Rosenblum has served as a visiting professor at Sciences Po Law School in Paris, American University and Seattle University and has taught at Fordham and the University of Pennsylvania Law Schools. He has presented his work and lectured in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

In 2011, he was a Fulbright Research Scholar in France to perform an empirical study on the French quota for women on corporate boards which he presented as the guest of honor at the French National Assembly.  He also presented this research at the Federal Election Commission (U.S.), the European Commission Justice Department and at workshops and conferences at the law faculties of Chicago, Harvard, Sciences Po and Yale, among others.
