Introducing Guest Blogger Lawrence Cunningham
I’m very pleased to introduce Professor Lawrence Cunningham, my colleague from GW Law School. Larry joined the GW Law School faculty in 2007, having previously taught for 6 years at Boston College (where he served a 2-year term as Academic Dean) and for 8 years at Cardozo (where he served a 5-year term as Director of the Heyman Center on Corporate Governance). He also taught courses at many other schools in the US and abroad, including Central European University, Columbia University, Hebrew University, University of Navarra, and Vanderbilt University. Before entering academia, he practiced corporate law for 4 years at Cravath, Swaine & Moore. He earned his BA from University of Delaware and his JD magna cum laude from Cardozo.
Larry writes extensively in corporate and securities law, with a special emphasis on law and accounting and investor perspectives. He teaches courses in those fields as well as Contracts. He has published a dozen books and 35 law review articles. A complete list of his publications can be found here.
