Andrew Tuch

Professor of Law

Professor Tuch uses conceptual insights from economics and finance to examine issues in corporate law and governance, securities regulation, and financial regulation. He has published widely in the United States, England, and Australia. He holds LLM and SJD degrees from Harvard Law School, where he was a Fulbright Scholar, a Fellow of the Program on Corporate Governance, and an Olin Fellow in Law and Economics. At Harvard, he was a two-time recipient of the Brudney Prize for the Best Paper in Corporate Governance. Before joining Washington University, Professor Tuch was a member of the University of Sydney Law School and, prior to that, practiced corporate law with Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York and London. He has held visiting positions at Duke, IDC Herzliya, and the Max Plank Institute of Comparative and International Private Law. He currently serves on the National Adjudicatory Council of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the primary regulator of broker-dealers in the United States. His working papers and published scholarship can be accessed here.
