Jeffrey Manns is a Professor of Law whose teaching and research interests focus on securities regulation, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate law. He also has a courtesy appointment as a Professor of Finance in the George Washington University School of Business.
Professor Manns is a graduate of Yale Law School and received his doctorate from Oxford University, which he attended as a Rhodes Scholar. He served as a Senior Editor of the Yale Law Journal and received the Israel H. Peres Prize for the best student publication in the Yale Law Journal. Before joining the law school faculty, Professor Manns clerked on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and practiced law in Washington, D.C.
His most recent articles assess the degree of editorial churning and inefficiency in both the macro and micro levels of merger agreement drafting. His current projects entail proposals to overhaul oligopoly regulation and to reform the appointment process for independent agencies. He formerly served for four years as the Faculty Director for the Center for Law, Economics, and Finance during which he worked on a multi-million dollar fundraising campaign, developed an entrepreneurship initiative, and expanded the Business and Finance Law LLM program.
