Hu, the Allan Shivers Chair in the Law of Banking and Finance at The University of Texas Law School, is interested in the law and economics of a wide variety of issues related to modern corporate and international finance. He has written on such matters as the use and regulation of "swaps" and other "derivatives", corporate governance, and mutual funds. The articles appeared in such places as the "Yale Law Journal " and the "Journal of Applied Corporate Finance.
