In addition to his texts, Financial Information, Accounting, and the Law: Cases and Materials, Corporations and Other Business Organizations: Cases and Materials (with Eisenberg), and Securities Regulations: Cases and Materials (with Hillman, Lipton & Langevoort) and his multi-volume treatise Cox and Hazen on Corporations, he has published extensively in the areas of market regulation and corporate governance and has testified before the U.S. House and Senate on insider trading, class actions, and market reform issues.

    Cox’s memberships have included the American Law Institute, the ABA Committee on Corporate Laws, the NYSE Legal Advisory Committee, the NASD Legal Advisory Board, and the Fulbright Law Discipline Review Committee. In 2009, he was appointed to the Bipartisan Policy Center's credit rating agency task force and most recently was a member of the Center’s Capital Market Task Force. Since 2009 he has been a member of the Standing Advisory Group for the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. In 2001 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Mercature from the University of Southern Denmark for his work in international securities law. Cox and Hazen on Corporations won the Association of American Publishers National Book Award for Best New Professional/Scholarly Legal Book for 1995. He served as a member of the corporate law drafting committees in California (1977-80) and North Carolina (1984-93).

    Cox joined the Duke Law faculty in 1979 after teaching at the law schools of Boston University, the University of San Francisco, the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, and Stanford. During the 1988-89 academic year he was a Senior Research Fulbright Fellow at the University of Sydney. He earned his B.S. from Arizona State University and law degrees at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law (J.D.) and Harvard Law School (LL.M.)

Prior to joining the Law Center faculty in 1999, Professor Langevoort was the Lee S. and Charles A. Speir Professor at Vanderbilt University School of Law, where he joined the faculty in 1981. The courses Professor Langevoort teaches are Contracts, Securities Regulation, various seminars on corporate and securities issues, and Corporations. Professor Langevoort has received the Paul J.

    Robert W. Hillman

    Robert W. Hillman is a Professor of Law and Fair Business Practices and Investor Advocacy Chair at University of California, Davis School of Law. "The road to practicing law internationally begins at home," said Robert Hillman. "The essential prerequisite for becoming a private international lawyer is a solid grounding in domestic law. Take as many business law courses as possible without regard to whether they have a domestic or international orientation. Knowing how transactions are structured, having the ability to draft documents, to negotiate effectively and to close a business deal-these do not vary whether you're practicing domestically or internationally." Before coming to King Hall, Hillman was general counsel for Star-Kist Foods, a job that took him throughout Southeast Asia, West Africa, Latin America, and Europe. After joining the UC Davis faculty in 1984, he evaluated Chinese law schools as a consultant for the World Bank and taught two semesters at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. He has also taught at New York University, Duke, Georgia, and Florida State. The job of the private international lawyer is neither easy nor glamorous, he said. "There are long hours on the road, negotiating in stressful environments without the support mechanisms you would have at home. On the other hand, there's a diversity about what you're doing that is not to be found in domestic practice. And your working environments are certainly different and stimulating."
