Professor Spalding's teaching and research interests lie at the intersection of business law, international law, and criminal law, with a specific focus on international anticorruption statutes. He has placed articles in the UCLA Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, and Florida Law Review, and his research has been featured in The Economist, The Wall Street Journal and Forbes magazine. He has lectured and conducted research in developing countries throughout the world, including India, China, Turkey, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Thailand, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates. At Chicago-Kent, he teaches International Business Transactions, Securities Regulation, and Legal Writing. Prior to coming to Chicago-Kent, Professor Spalding was a Fulbright Senior Research Scholar based in Mumbai, India, where he studied the impact of anticorruption laws on developing countries in Asia. He previously conducted corporate governance investigations and securities fraud litigation in the Washington, D.C., office of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, following clerkships at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada. He has a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and taught political science at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, while earning his J.D. In his travels, as in all else, he greatly enjoys the companionship of his wife, Bethany, and their daughters, Simone, Phoebe and Bronte.
