Brings expertise in corporate and fiduciary law and excellence in teaching

PROFESSOR ANDREW GOLD, an expert in corporate law, fiduciary law, and private law theory (including contract theory, tort theory, and property theory), joined the Law School this summer. He previously served on the faculty at DePaul University College of Law, where he taught in the areas of business organizations, corporate finance, securities fraud, and jurisprudence. He received the school’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship in 2007 and 2013 and the Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2010.

“The students, faculty, and administration here have an energy and an interest in the law that is second to none,” Gold said. “And the location in the heart of Brooklyn offers so many incredible opportunities and resources. I’m very much looking forward to contributing to the Brooklyn Law School community. I was also born in Brooklyn, so this feels like a homecoming.”

Gold is a member of the Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation, which provides a forum for scholarship that offers new perspectives on, and solutions to, real-world business law and regulatory issues. “Professor Gold’s extensive and compelling scholarship in fiduciary law and corporate law and his excellence in teaching will further enhance the Law School’s position as a leader in business law,” said the center’s codirectors, Professors Edward Janger and James Fanto. “We are thrilled that he has joined the stellar group of faculty members affiliated with the center.”

His work has been published in the Northwestern University Law Review, the University of Toronto Law Journal, the William and Mary Law Review, and the Michigan Law Review, among others. He is coeditor of Philosophical Foundations of Fiduciary Law (Oxford University Press, 2014), as well as several additional volumes. He is also a cofounder of the North American Workshop on Private Law Theory.

Previously, Gold was the Bruce W. Nichols Visiting Professor at Harvard Law School, an H.L.A. Hart Visiting Fellow at the University of Oxford, and a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair at McGill University. He received his J.D. from Duke University School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College.
