Nadav Orian Peer’s scholarship and teaching focus on the law of financial institutions (including banking, capital and derivatives markets), international finance and community development.
Before joining the Tulane Law faculty as a visiting assistant professor and a fellow at the Murphy Institute, he worked as a business economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (Financial Markets Group) and completed an S.J.D. at Harvard Law School where he taught as a Byse Fellow. As a member of the Israel Bar Association, he has also practiced commercial litigation, specializing in bankruptcy and secured transactions.
Orian Peer’s research explores the intense framework of governance and regulation that undergirds the day-to-day functioning of financial markets. The design and operation of this framework has profound implications for the distribution of credit and economic opportunity in society. His recent articles include Negotiating the Lender-of-Last-Resort: The 1913 Fed Act as a Debate Over Credit Distribution (15 NYU Journal of Law & Business, forthcoming 2019) and A Constitutional Approach to Shadow Banking: The Early Shadow System is forthcoming in Inside Money: Re-Theorizing Liquidity (University of Pennsylvania Press, Christine Desan ed.). His current work in progress includes The CCP Insolvency Game: The Default Auction as a Stag Hunt (with Rebecca Lewis).
