He served as a Primary Editor on the Harvard Law Review and published two student notes. He received his J.D., magna cum laude in 2003.[1]

In 2006, Cohen returned to Harvard as an Academic Fellow & Lecturer On Law at the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics. Upon completing his fellowship, in 2008, Cohen became a tenure-track professor at Harvard Law School and was tenured as a full professor in 2013.[11] Cohen's work lies at the intersection of law and bioethics. His current projects focus on big data, health information technology, technology in medicine, telemedicine, rationing in law and medicine, FDA law, and medical tourism.

Cohen was selected as a Radcliffe Institute Fellow for the 2012-2013 year[12] and is a fellow at the Hastings Center,[1] one of the leading bioethics think tanks in the United States.

He is also one of the lead co-investigators in the NFL Football Players Health Study at Harvard.[13] He spearheads the Ethics and Law initiative at Harvard Catalyst, an NIH-supported clinical and translation science initiative.[14]
