Michael Heller recently joined Columbia Law School as the Lawrence A. Wien Professor of Real Estate Law. He now teaches property, land use, and real estate courses. In addition, he has taught courses in international law and post-socialist transition. Heller's research and writing explores property theory in a wide range of settings. For example, his work on ¨The Tragedy of the Anticommons,¨ published in Science and in the Harvard Law Review, draws on post-socialist transition and biomedical research to show how the creation of too many private property rights can be as costly as creating too few rights. In ¨The Liberal Commons,¨ co-authored with Hanoch Dagan and published in the Yale Law Journal, Heller explores declining black landownership in America to offer a new theory of commons property. In addition, Heller has published articles on takings law, corporate governance, restitution, and post-socialist transition in numerous journals and edited volumes. Before joining Columbia in 2002, Heller taught for eight years at the University of Michigan Law School. While at Michigan, students selected Heller to receive the L. Hart Wright Award for excellence in teaching, the law school's highest teaching award. He has also co-directed corporate governance research at the William Davidson Institute of the University of Michigan Business School, and been a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Over the past few years, Heller has presented faculty workshops at dozens of law schools and at conferences including the Annual Meetings of the American Law and Economics Association, the American Association of Law Schools, and the American Political Science Association. Heller was a visiting professor at NYU in 2001, an Olin Senior Fellow at Columbia in 2000, and a visiting lecturer at Yale in 1991. Before entering teaching, Heller worked at the World Bank on post-socialist legal transition in land and housing. During the 1980s, he consulted for the Urban Institute, Ford Foundation, and USAID on urban development issues in Bangladesh and in several Latin American countries. Heller clerked for the Honorable James R. Browning, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and was graduated from Stanford Law School and Harvard College.
