Roy Shapira is an associate professor at Reichman University (IDC) at Israel. Shapira focuses on reputation, regulation, and corporate governance. His book on these topics, titled “Law and Reputation”, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2020, and his articles were published at leading law reviews, such as University of Chicago Law Review, Washington University Law Review, and Vanderbilt Law Review.
Shapira received his SJD and LLM degrees from Harvard Law School, where he was an Olin Corporate Governance Fellow and a Clark Byse Fellow, and won the Victor Brudney Prize (for best paper on corporate governance) twice. Shapira also taught a seminar at Harvard’s Economics Department for six years, earning six Bok Awards (for teaching excellence).
Shapira has practical experience as a litigator (prior to joining Harvard; focusing on class and derivative actions), and as a reputation consultant (after completing his doctoral dissertation, which focused on reputation).
He is currently working on projects on the challenges of holding big business accountable, the role of gatekeepers in corporate compliance, and the information-production aspects of private law’s basic doctrines.
