Location:   Tupinamba Cafe - 9665 N Central Expressway
Time:   11:30AM-1:00PM
Price:   0.00
Description:   Join us for the DAMC’s Aggie Business Luncheon, typically held monthly on the first Wednesday of the month. At each luncheon, we typically welcome an interesting guest speaker, often times an Aggie. Come hear their story of success and achievement; and bring plenty of business cards for networking.

Guest speaker/program:
Robert B. Ahdieh, dean of Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth, to present an introduction/update on the law school.

A graduate of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Yale Law School, Ahdieh served as law clerk to Judge James R. Browning of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit before his selection for the Honors Program in the Civil Division of the US Department of Justice.

While still in law school, Ahdieh published what remains one of the seminal treatments of the constitutional transformation of post-Soviet Russia: "Russia’s Constitutional Revolution—Legal Consciousness and the Transition to Democracy." Ahdieh’s work has also appeared in the Boston University Law Review, Michigan Law Review, Minnesota Law Review, NYU Law Review, and Southern California Law Review, among other journals.

Ahdieh’s scholarly interests revolve around questions of regulatory and institutional design, especially in the financial arena. His particular focus has been on various non-traditional regulatory structures and modes of regulation, including those grounded in dynamics of coordination. Though neglected by many legal scholars and policymakers, the need to coordinate may help explain existing rules and regulations, suggestion when regulation might (and might not) be needed, and offer insight into the optimal form any such regulation should take.

Prior to joining the Texas A&M University faculty, Ahdieh was the K.H. Gyr Professor of Law at Emory University, in Atlanta, Georgia. During his tenure at Emory, Ahdieh also served as Associate Dean of Faculty and as Vice Dean. In those capacities, he helped to lead a broad transformation of the composition of the student body, the faculty, and the degree offerings and curriculum of the law school.

Ahdieh has served as a visiting professor at Columbia and Georgetown law schools, as well as at Princeton University. He has also visited at the Institute for Advanced Study, the University of British Columbia, the University of Warsaw, and Singapore Management University, among other overseas institutions.
