Her scholarship appears in legal academic journals including The University of Pennsylvania Law Review, The University of California Davis Law Review, The Ohio State Law Journal, Temple Law Review, Nevada Law Journal, and Nebraska Law Review, in addition to the peer-reviewed interdisciplinary Journal of Law, Medicine, & Ethics, the Journal of Legal Medicine, and the N.Y.U.

Professor McCuskey was a 2023 Brocher Foundation Scholar-in-Residence in Switzerland.
