Rohr joins the faculty of the UT College of Law after spending two years on faculty at the Cardozo School of Law. He specializes in corporate law, securities regulation, and contracts. Rohr’s research interests focus on the role of private ordering in business associations. Prior to entering academia, Rohr practiced law for several years, primarily in the New York office of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP.
