Eric Andrew Posner (born December 5, 1965) is Kirkland and Ellis Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. An editor of The Journal of Legal Studies, he has also published numerous articles and books on issues in international law. He is well known as the co-author of Terror in the Balance and The Executive Unbound.

He is the son of the federal appellate judge Richard Posner.

Posner attended Yale University (B.A., M.A. in philosophy, summa cum laude) and received his law degree from Harvard Law School (J.D., magna cum laude) in 1991. He clerked for Judge Stephen F. Williams of the D.C. Circuit.

A professor at the University of Chicago Law School, Posner is an editor of The Journal of Legal Studies. He has published numerous articles on subjects including international law, cost-benefit analysis, and constitutional law.

He has taught courses in international law, foreign relations law, and game theory and the law.[4] His current research focuses on international law, foreign relations law, and international tribunals.

He has written about the trial of the deposed Iraqi president Saddam Hussein.[5]

In June 2013 Posner and Jameel Jaffer, fellow at the Open Society Foundations, participated in the New York Times’s Room for Debate series. Posner responded to concerns about expanded National Security Agency programs that vacuum information about the private lives of American citizens. Since c. 2005 the N.S.A. has served major telecommunications companies with metadata[notes 1][2] For example Verizon Business Network Services, one of America’s largest telecoms providers, was required to provide “records of millions of US customers” to the NSA.[notes 2][6] He claimed that Americans obtain the services they want by disclosing private information to strangers such as “the market services of doctors, insurance companies, Internet service providers, employers, therapists and the rest, or the nonmarket services of the government like welfare and security.” He argued that, since 2001 there has not been an incident in which the United States government used information “obtained for security purposes with “war-on-terror-related surveillance” technologies to “target a political opponent, dissenter or critic.”
