(Schwartz, Andrew A. - 2016) -- Traditional Fulbright Scholarship
Award or Honor Receipt
Andrew Schwartz came to CU Boulder following four years of corporate legal practice and two clerkships, one with the Ninth Circuit, Court of Appeals, and the other with the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. As a legal scholar, he researches corporate, securities and contract law. In particular, he investigates what it means when we say, within a legal framework, that corporations have “perpetual existence.” He also studies the methods and pitfalls of crowdfunding financial securities, which are the focus of his 2017 Fulbright research and lectureship at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. He believes New Zealand offers an especially fruitful research environment because it has been conducting securities crowdfunding since 2014. Professor Schwartz has published in major journals such as the UCLA Law Review, the Minnesota Law Review and the Notre Dame Law Review, and has won national awards for his scholarship, including the AALS Scholarly Paper Competition and the Federalist Society Young Legal Scholars Paper Competition. In addition, he has received accolades from CU, including the Provost’s Award for Faculty Achievement (a research award) and the Outstanding New Faculty Award (an award for teaching).
