Bernard Black, JD
Nicholas J. Chabraja Professor at Northwestern University, Pritzker School of Law, Kellogg School of Management, and Institute for Policy Research

Bernard S. Black is Nicholas D. Chabraja Professor at Northwestern University, with faculty positions in the Pritzker School of Law and the Kellogg School of Management, Department of Finance. In his healthcare research, he studies how health insurance and medical malpractice affects the quality and cost of medical care, with a focus on diabetic patients, and the effects of hospital-physician integration on care quality and outcomes. He seeks to assess the causal impacts of legal changes and other shocks, for example, the impact of health insurance or medical malpractice reform on health care outcomes, of infection reporting on hospital-acquired infections, and of firm-level governance on firm outcomes.
