We’re very fortunate to have Professor Elizabeth Nowicki of Richmond Law School join us for the next few weeks. Elizabeth received her JD from Columbia Law School where she was a James Kent Scholar and a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar. She served as an articles editor of the Columbia Business Law Review. Following law school, she clerked for Judge Jack B. Weinstein of the Eastern District of New York and Judge James L. Oakes of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She practiced law at the Securities and Exchange Commission and at Sullivan & Cromwell.
She joined the University of Richmond School of Law faculty in 2002, and she teaches in the areas of corporate law, corporate governance, securities regulation, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance. This fall, she will be visiting at Cornell Law School.
