Dr. Cohen's interests include history of law, law and religion, and, in particular, the evolution of Jewish law in Christian Europe. He read law at the University of Kent, Canterbury, and earned his Ph.D. (Law) from the University of Liverpool. His research focused on the evolution of restitution as a civil remedy in medieval Jewish law. At the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies he was the first David Patterson Junior Fellow in Jewish Law.

He has recently written on the status of married women in bigamous Jewish households, on the evolution of Jewish welfare law, on rabbinic perceptions of Jewish solidarity, and on Jewish law and modernity. Dr. Cohen is currently editing a volume of studies in Jewish commercial law that will be published by the Jewish Law Association, and is writing on the development of halakhic writing and reasoning.
