Pablo Echeverri, assistant professor of law, teaches Corporations at Duquesne University School of Law. Echeverri focuses his research on how the practice of legal actors influences the development and implementation of legal rules. His work explores this question from private and public law angles, centering on issues of capital markets transactions and Latin American constitutional architecture. His current securities-related research takes a particular interest in the regulation of unregistered offerings pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. Echeverri’s Latin America work analyzes matters of constitutional design and separation of powers in Colombia and how they affect governability.

Prior to joining Duquesne Law, Echeverri was a fellow at Berkeley Law’s Robbins Collection, which promotes comparative research in the fields of religious and civil law.  At Berkeley, he organized Judicial Independence and Accountability in Latin America, a symposium attended by an esteemed group of legal scholars that included Berkeley Law professors, a justice of Colombia’s Council of State, a former justice of Colombia’s Supreme Court, a regional adviser for UNESCO, and professors from other prominent U.S. and South American institutions.

Echeverri presented a paper, “The Role of Custom in Rule 144A Capital Markets Transactions,” at a 2017 workshop at the University of Montpellier’s Institut des Usages, along with a group of scholars from Berkeley and the host institution. That year, his paper “The 2015 Power-Balancing Reform in Colombia: A Missed Opportunity to Disrupt the Ecosystem of Structural Clientelism in the Halls of Justice” was accepted for a panel presentation at the American Society of Comparative Law’s Young Comparativists Committee Annual Conference at Koç University Law School in Istanbul, Turkey.  

Echeverri has practiced law in the Capital Markets Group at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy in New York City, working primarily on securities offerings by Latin American issuers. He obtained his J.D. from Berkeley Law and his B.A., magna cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania with a major in political science. Echeverri is admitted to practice in New York and is an inactive member of the District of Columbia Bar.
