Professor Weber earned his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, where he
was awarded the Saul L. Nadler Award for excellence in the fields of Corporate Law,
Creditors’ Rights, and Securities Law. While at Michigan Law, he served as Articles

Professor Weber’s recent scholarship has explored how legal-regulatory regimes can best
promote regulatory objectives in complex, dynamic, and unstable financial markets. In
that context, he has written and lectured about bank capital adequacy regulation, the
Federal Reserve's comprehensive capital analysis and review, life insurance reserve
accounting, municipal finance and derivatives, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and
Consumer Protection Act, stress testing, the law of risk management, and regulatory
capture. His articles have been published in the Minnesota Law Review, the Journal of
Corporation Law, the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Business Law, the American
Business Law Journal (peer reviewed), the Administrative Law Review, the Berkeley
Business Law Journal, the Duke Journal of International and Comparative Law, and the
Michigan Journal of International Law. In 2012, he was awarded the Ralph C. Hoeber Award
for Excellence in Research by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business.
