UW Law School welcomed Yaron Nili to its faculty in July. Professor Nili will teach classes in corporate and securities law, beginning with Business Organizations II this fall.
Nili’s scholarly interests include corporate law, securities law and corporate governance. “My research focuses on the board of directors of public corporations and how recent changes to the corporate governance landscape requires re-examination of many long-standing assumptions and arrangements around this important corporate institution,” he says.
He graduated summa cum laude from the Hebrew University Faculty of Law, where he was the editor-in-chief of the Hebrew University Law Review. He also earned an MBA in finance, magna cum laude, from the Hebrew University. Subsequently, Nili served as a law clerk to Justice Ayala Procaccia of the Israeli Supreme Court.
In 2007, Nili was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue advanced legal studies at Harvard Law School, where he earned an LL.M. and an S.J.D. At Harvard, he was a John M. Olin Fellow in Law and Economics and a fellow at the Program on Corporate Governance. He also worked in private practice as a corporate associate at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett in New York.
His publications appear or are forthcoming in the Hastings Law Journal, the Harvard Business Law Review and the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law.
Nili says he’s excited to join the UW Law School community: “I look forward to engaging with the high-caliber student body and faculty and staff and becoming part of UW Law’s long tradition of fostering a strong, supportive and hands-on environment for the study of law."
