Anne Tucker, associate professor of law, researches corporate law, recently focusing on issues related to institutional investors and retirement investors. Tucker’s research focuses on how pooled investments are regulated, but also on their power to achieve important personal and social ends such as retirement security and private funding for social entrepreneurship.
Her most recent work incorporates empirical methodology and focuses on impact investment (“In Pursuit of Good and Gold: Data Observations of Employee Ownership & Impact Investment,” 40 Seattle University Law Review 1 (2017) with co-authors) and mutual fund holding periods (“The Long & The Short: An Empirical Study of Mutual Fund Time Horizons,” forthcoming in the Journal of Corporation Law). Additional scholarship examples include her 2016 Yale Law Journal (Forum) article: “Locked in-The Competitive Disadvantage of Citizen Shareholders,” and her co-written piece in the Harvard Business Law Review article, “Institutional Investing with Shareholders are Not Supreme” (2015).
Prior to joining the College of Law, Tucker practiced corporate law with Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP. She also clerked for Judge Alice D. Bonner and Judge Elizabeth E. Long at Georgia’s Business Court, a specialized court adjudicating high-dollar, complex, commercial and business litigation. While at the court, Tucker simultaneously served as the program director overseeing the initial development of the Business Court and writing about the role of specialized courts in modern civil jurisprudence.
Tucker received her J.D. magna cum laude at Indiana University, Bloomington-Maurer School of Law, where she served as the senior managing editor of the Federal Communications Law Journal, the official journal of the Federal Communications Bar Association. She is a member of the Order of the Coif and earned the Public Interest Service Award. Before attending law school, she served as a Governor’s Fellow for Indiana Gov. Frank O’Bannon.
