Robert Weber teaches courses in Corporations, Securities Regulation, and Corporate Finance. He graduated from the University of Michigan Law School, where he was awarded the Saul L. Nadler Award for excellence in the fields of Corporate Law, Creditors’ Rights, and Securities Law. He clerked for Judge Richard W. Goldberg of the U.S. Court of International Trade. After his clerkship, he was an associate in the corporate department of the international law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP in New York. At Debevoise, his practice focused on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, financial regulatory matters, and securities law.
Weber’s recent scholarship has explored how legal-regulatory regimes can best promote regulatory objectives in complex, dynamic, and unstable financial markets. In that context, he has written and lectured about bank capital adequacy regulation, stress testing, risk management, life insurance reserve accounting, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and regulatory capture. In 2012, he was awarded the Ralph C. Hoeber Award for Excellence in Research by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business. Prior to his legal career, Weber received his A.B. from Duke University and received a Fulbright Scholarship to study immigration trends in Italy at the Università degli Studi di Roma “La Sapienza” during the 2001-2002 academic year.
He is admitted to practice in the State of New York.
