Marjorie Cohn is a Professor of Law at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, San Diego, California, and a former president of the National Lawyers Guild.
In 1978 Cohn received a job in the International Association of Democratic Lawyers. According to her biography, she also "participated in delegations to Cuba, China, Russia, and Yugoslavia" early on her career.
Cohn strongly opposed the "U.S.-engineered deportation" of Serbian leader Slobodan Milošević to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity committed in Kosovo. She accused the West of targeting Serbian civilians and stated the deportation to the ICC was "a crime against the people of Yugoslavia".
