Thomas J. Brennan

I am a Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law and a Professor of Finance, by courtesy, at Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management. During the spring semester of 2013-2014, I am also the Justin W. D'Atri Visiting Professor of Law, Business and Society at Columbia Law School.

My research focuses on the use of finance and economic theory to analyze and inform tax policy. I also use empirical methods to investigate the effects of tax laws and the strategic behavior of taxpayers.

My ongoing other research interests include the application of finance theory and empirical methods to the law in areas other than tax, as well as the empirical study of judicial behavior. In addition, my continuing work includes the use of mathematical methods to obtain new insights into the theory of finance and the behavior of financial actors.
