Geeyoung Min


Geeyoung Min is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Law and a Postdoctoral Fellow in Corporate Law and Governance at Ira M. Millstein Center at Columbia Law School.

Geeyoung's research focuses on the issues of corporate law and governance with both doctrinal and empirical emphases. Her main scholarly objective is to examine whether current federal and state laws, combined with companies’ corporate governance arrangements, are effective in alleviating agency problems. While her primary focus is on publicly-traded companies in the U.S., she also employs comparative analytical methods by examining the issues in other countries, especially those in East Asia.

Geeyoung received her B.A. in anthropology and B.L. in law from Seoul National University, followed by LL. M. and J.S.D. from Yale Law School. While at Yale, she was a recipient of Lillian Goldman Scholarship and John M. Olin Summer Fellowship. As a Research Assistant Professor of Law at University of Virginia School of Law, she taught courses in corporate governance.
