Background

Before joining the faculty at Loyola Law School, Carlos was a graduate student at Harvard University, where he obtained his PhD in Economics.  As a doctoral student, he devoted much of his scholarship to the interaction of law and economics, and in particular to understanding the impact of judicial institutions on judges’ behavior.  Prior to beginning his graduate studies, he practiced as a corporate attorney in New York, representing Latin American clients in various types of financings and in related securities law matters.  His current research employs economic tools to further our understanding of the regulation of securities and other investments and of how legal regimes influence corporations' financing decisions.
