Shill is an Associate Professor at the University of Iowa College of Law and an Affiliated Faculty Member at the National Advanced Driving Simulator at the University of Iowa College of Engineering.

His articles have been published or are forthcoming in the Harvard Law Review Forum, N.Y.U. Law Review, UCLA Law Review, and other leading journals. In 2020, Professor Shill published three law review articles, launched a podcast on law and urban economics (Densely Speaking: Conversations About Cities, Economics & Law), founded and ran a Seinfeld-themed parody law school for charity (Yada Yada Law School), and hosted the first-ever academic conference on law and transportation, the Iowa Law Review Symposium on the Future of Law and Transportation.

Professor Shill holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a B.A. from Columbia University. After law school, he clerked on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and practiced as an appellate litigator (at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher) and corporate lawyer (at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft) in New York and London. He joined the Iowa faculty in 2017 following fellowships at Harvard Law School in the Program on Corporate Governance and N.Y.U. Law School. Prior to law school, he worked as a congressional staffer and received an M.A. in Judaic studies from the Jewish Theological Seminary.

Professor Shill serves on a state automated vehicle advisory committee and is a member of the Road to Zero Coalition, a joint project of the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Safety Council to eliminate traffic deaths. He speaks regularly in policy forums and his commentary has been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, The Atlantic, NBC, NPR, CNBC, Bloomberg CityLab, and other news media. 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 gregory-shill@uiowa.edu.
