In the book, Copeland, along with co-authors Ellen S. Podgor, Michael R. Dimino, Sr., Ruthann Robson, Louis J. Virelli, III, Andrew M. Wright, and Ellen C. Yaroshefsky, looks at The Mueller Investigation, which was an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election, and the issues that stem from it, creating a tool that allows for the learning and review of concepts across the law school curriculum. In her contribution to the book, Copeland addresses issues surrounding the attorney-client relationship between President Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen.

The book’s format -- which includes cases, essays, and other materials -- allow it to be used as a capstone course, with content that lends itself to discussions on various legal subjects, including administrative law, civil procedure, counterintelligence and congressional investigative activity, white collar crime, constitutional law, criminal law and procedure, election law, evidence, and professional responsibility.

At Penn State Law, Copeland teaches constitutional law, criminal law, white-collar crime, and a seminar on policy issues in corporate crime. Her scholarship addresses legal and ethical issues, such as the attorney-client privilege, that arise during internal investigations in white-collar criminal cases. She also writes about health care fraud and abuse with a focus on fraud by pharmaceutical companies.
