Green’s work focuses on the philosophical underpinnings of a wide range of issues in substantive criminal law, especially involving the question of criminalization. Among the many issues he has written about is the law and ethics of self-defense and defense of premises, informed in turn by issues of gun ownership and gun control. He also teaches basic courses in substantive criminal law and criminal procedure, which also touch on questions regarding the use of lethal force by the police and private citizens.
