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.
My research is currently focused 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 to the law
in areas other than tax, the empirical analysis
of corporate financing decisions, and 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.
The purpose of this website is to make
available some information about my background
