Gregory H. Shill studies firms, cities, and transportation through the lens of corporate law, securities regulation, and economic geography. His scholarship has been published or is forthcoming in leading journals, including the Harvard Law Review Forum, N.Y.U. Law Review, and UCLA Law Review, and his commentary has been featured in The New York TimesWall Street JournalWashington PostThe Atlantic, NPR, NBC, Planet Money, and other news media.

Professor Shill received a J.D. from Harvard Law School. He then clerked for Judge Jennifer W. Elrod of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Prior to entering academia, he was a litigator at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in New York and London and practiced corporate law at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft in New York. He holds a B.A. from Columbia University and an M.A. from the Jewish Theological Seminary.

Professor Shill joined the University of Iowa College of Law faculty in 2017 from a fellowship at Harvard Law School in the Program on Corporate Governance. In addition to his core law school appointment, he has courtesy appointments in the Department of Economics at the UI Tippie College of Business and the UI Driving Safety Research Institute. Together with Jeff Lin, an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, he co-hosts the scholarship podcast Densely Speaking: Conversations About Cities, Economics & Law.

In spring 2022, Professor Shill was a Visiting Professor of Law at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law. In summer 2020, he founded Yada Yada Law School, “a fake law school where real law professors teach classes about nothing, for charity.” (The effort raised $15,000 for legal services.) A native of Ann Arbor, Michigan, he is grateful that the Hawkeyes and Wolverines play in separate divisions of the Big Ten. He may be reached at gshill@uiowa.edu.
