Dr. Artem M. Joukov was born in Saint Petersburg, U.S.S.R. in 1990 and moved to the United States in 2000. Before becoming an academic, Dr. Joukov completed his education as a lawyer and practiced as an attorney in the United States. During his time in law school, he served on the University of Alabama Law Review, Trial Advocacy Team, Moot Court Board, and Criminal Procedure Moot Court Team, joining the Order of the Barrister. He was a finalist in the school’s internal moot court competition and earned the top trial advocacy scholarship awarded at the University of Alabama. When competing on behalf of UA Law, Dr. Joukov earned the top award in the National Criminal Moot Court Competition (the highest placement in his law school’s history). He also earned the Order of the Samaritan, the highest public service award granted by the UA Public Interest Institute. Dr. Joukov’s research is at the intersection of law, economics, and finance. He focuses on the importance of property rights to a robust economy and articulates the economic and financial damage associated with their diminution. His most recent papers have focused on shareholder rights, trade rights, and property owners’ rights in residential real estate. Dr. Joukov’s legal articles have been quoted and cited favorably by the Supreme Court of the United States, the Supreme Court of Georgia, and the Appellate Court of Connecticut. He has presented several of his works in finance at various conferences on finance and economics. Dr. Joukov began his legal career as a civil defense attorney. He then served as a prosecutor for the State of Alabama and the State of Florida before becoming a senior attorney and arbitrator for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. He currently serves as a JAG officer in the United States Army Reserve.
