Joseph H. Cooper

Joseph H. Cooper W69 L72

Professor, Media Law & Ethics, Film & Literature, Quinnipiac University

Following Wharton undergrad and Penn Law, Cooper spent late nights and early mornings working on municipal bond documents for a law firm. To alleviate eye strain, he went to Washington where he wrote speeches for the chairman of the NASD. With an assist from Amtrak, he reversed course to Manhattan, where, for 20 years, he was editorial counsel at The New Yorker. He then “retired” to teaching: offering journalism, literature and film courses, mainly at Quinnipiac University. Professor Cooper now focuses on Books columns for The Huffington Post. His “Pauses and Moments” stories for Psychology Today are published as “Rumblings from the lane next to the off ramp.”
