Reza Dibadj

Reza Dibadj is a Visiting Professor at Berkeley Law. Currently a Professor of Law at the University of San Francisco, he began his academic career as an Assistant Professor at the University of Miami.

His research involves both corporate and securities law as well as administrative law and regulation. His writing focuses on two themes. The first involves the application of new tools, such as network theory, to legal analysis. The second is an exploration of different institutional choices the law has made. For instance, corporate and securities law often try to achieve similar goals, but through very different means; similarly for antitrust and regulation. For their part, corporate and administrative law each present distinct approaches to problems of governance and delegation. Which methods are preferable, and under what circumstances? These two themes converge in an attempt to propose new, welfare-enhancing, institutional arrangements for the relationship between government and business.

Professor Dibadj has published one book and over thirty-five law review articles, book reviews and book chapters. He teaches a wide variety of business law classes, including Business Associations (Corporations), Securities Regulation (basic and advanced), International Business Transactions, Antitrust, and Mergers & Acquisitions.
