Professor of Law
Higher education law, criminal law, corporate law, white collar crime and securities fraud
Professor Glater’s writing focuses on the role of law as both response to and source of barriers to higher education. His research interests include the impact of federal aid policy on access to college, the effects of education debt on student decision-making, and relationships between higher education finance and the functioning of financial markets.
Prior to joining the faculty, Professor Glater for nine years worked as a reporter at The New York Times, where he wrote about the business of law and about higher education finance. Before joining the Times, he worked at Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton in New York and at Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
