Liberty Mutual Insurance Professor of Law at Boston College
Patricia A. McCoy, a nationally prominent scholar in financial services regulation, is the inaugural Liberty Mutual Insurance Professor of Law. In 2010 and 2011, she joined the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where she helped form the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and, as the CFPB’s first assistant director for mortgage markets, oversaw the Bureau’s mortgage policy initiatives. She teaches insurance law as well as banking regulation and a full array of other financial services regulatory courses. After receiving her law degree from U.C. Berkeley, Professor McCoy clerked for the late Hon. Robert S. Vance on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and was a partner at Mayer Brown in Washington, D.C., specializing in complex securities, banking, and constitutional litigation. More recently, she was the Director of the Insurance Law Center at the University of Connecticut School of Law before joining Boston College Law School.
