Robert B. Ahdieh – Dean and Anthony G. Buzbee Endowed Dean’s Chair, Texas A&M University School of Law

A graduate of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Yale Law School, Robert B. Ahdieh served as law clerk to Judge James R. Browning of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit before his selection for the Honor’s Program in the Civil Division of the US Department of Justice.

While still in law school, Ahdieh published what remains one of the seminal treatments of the constitutional transformation of post-Soviet Russia: “Russia’s Constitutional Revolution—Legal
Consciousness and the Transition to Democracy.” Ahdieh’s work has also appeared in the Boston
University Law Review, Michigan Law Review, Minnesota Law Review, NYU Law Review, and
Southern California Law Review, among other journals.
Ahdieh’s scholarly interests revolve around questions of regulatory and institutional design,
especially in the financial arena. His particular focus has been on various non-traditional
regulatory structures and modes of regulation, including those grounded in dynamics of
coordination. Though relatively less studied in the legal literature, the framework of coordination
holds significant promise both in helping us theorize existing regulatory patterns and in defining
new regulatory constructs for the future.
Ahdieh has served as a visiting professor at Columbia and Georgetown law schools, as well as at
Princeton University. He has also visited at the Institute for Advanced Study, at the University of
British Columbia, the University of Warsaw, and Singapore Management University, among
other overseas institutions.
