Hello! I’m Paolo Saguato. I’m an Assistant Professor of Law at Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University specializing in financial regulation.
My research and teaching interests encompass the intersection of banking, securities and derivatives regulation, and the international and comparative dynamics and regulations of financial systems. Over the past few years, I have focused my research on post-crisis reforms of securities and derivatives, with a particular emphasis on financial market infrastructures and the shadow banking system. My recent scholarship has been published in the Yale Journal on Regulation; the Stanford Journal of Law, Business and Finance; the Journal of Corporate Law Studies; and the Oxford Handbook of Financial Regulation.
Before joining Antonin Scalia Law, I was a Research Fellow at the Georgetown Law Center (Institute of International Economic Law) and a Fellow in Financial Regulation at the London School of Economic and Political Science, where I received the Teaching Excellence Award in 2016. I joined the LSE after a year as a Global Hauser Fellow at New York University School of Law where I was affiliated with the Center for Financial Institutions. I earned a BA (Laurea in Scienze Giuridiche) and a J.D. (Laurea Magistrale in Giurisprudenza) summa cum laude at the University of Genoa (Italy) and a Ph.D. in Private, Business, and International Law at the same university. In addition, he holds a LL.M. from Yale Law School, which he attended as a Fulbright Scholar, where he focused his studies on financial markets regulation and corporate law and was a senior editor of the Yale Journal on Regulation.
