Professor Chang’s scholarship focuses on financial reform, particularly the intersections of financial regulation and antitrust. In this area, he has written on the convergence of the credit and derivatives markets, as well as the balance between antitrust and regulation after Dodd-Frank. Professor Chang also works in comparative law. His current project in this area is a book under contract with Cambridge University Press that compares Roma inclusion in Eastern Europe with desegregation in the American South during Civil Rights.

Professor Chang founded and directs the Institute for the Global Practice of Law (IGPL), which designs innovative programming for legal practitioners around the world. To date, its programs have drawn participants from Armenia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cameroon, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, France, India, Iran, Italy, Jamaica, Jordan, Nepal, Nigeria, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Taiwan, Uganda, and Ukraine. IGPL supplements the College of Law’s LLM program in the U.S. legal system, which Professor Chang also helped launch.

In 2014, Professor Chang received the Goldman Prize for Excellence in Teaching. At the College of Law, he primarily teaches business-related course, as well as trusts and estates.
