Robert J. Jackson Jr. was sworn into office as an SEC commissioner, along with Hester M. Peirce, on January 11, 2018 by SEC Chairman Jay Clayton. He was nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Dec. 21, 2018 [1] and served as a commissioner from January 11, 2018 to February 14, 2020.[2]

He was previously a professor at NYU School of Law, and before that was professor of law and director of the Program on Corporate Law and Policy at Columbia Law School, both in New York City. He also has served as an adviser at the Treasury Department and in the Office of the Special Master for TARP Executive Compensation.

The two appointments brought the SEC to its full complement of commissioners.[3] [4]

Background[edit]

Jackson joined the faculty of Columbia in 2010.

Before Columbia Law School, Jackson worked for the Department of the Treasury as a senior policy adviser. While with the Treasury, Jackson worked on policies meant to give shareholders more of a say in corporate governance and advocated for more transparency.

Prior to that, Jackson worked for Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz in the executive compensation department.[5]

Education[edit]

Jackson earned a BA from the University of Pennsylvania, a BS and MBA in Finance from Wharton, an MPP from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, and a JD from Harvard Law School.[5]
