Columbia Law Professor to be Nominated as SEC Commissioner
Robert Jackson Jr., a Professor of Law and director of the Program on Corporate Law and Policy at Columbia Law School, will be nominated for the vacant Democratic seat on the SEC. Earlier this summer, the White House nominated Hester Peirce, a former SEC counsel and Senate aide, to serve as an SEC Republican Commissioner. The SEC currently is headed by Chair Jay Clayton and Commissioners Michael Pinowar and Kara Stein.
ROBERT JACKSON JR. BACKGROUND. According to the Columbia University site, Jackson joined the faculty in 2010. As director of the Program on Corporate Law and Policy, Jackson's research emphasizes empirical study of executive compensation and corporate governance matters. His most recent project focuses on leakage of material non-public information when activist hedge funds gain corporate board seats, and activist derivative usage.
Other research includes: (i) the first study to examine the time delays of corporate filings posted to the SEC's EDGAR website, its FTP server, and the PDF subscription service; (ii) the first study of the effect of mandatory disclosures required by the JOBS Act on trading by individual investors; (iii) the first empirical study of incentives throughout the managerial hierarchy of a large investment bank; and, (iv) the first comprehensive study of CEO pay in firms owned by private equity.
Before joining the faculty in 2010, Jackson served as an adviser to senior officials at the Department of the Treasury and in the Office of the Special Master for TARP Executive Compensation. Before that, Jackson practiced in the executive compensation department of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz.
