Professor Veronica Santarosa teaches first-year contract law, economic analysis of law, international finance, and a seminar on the law and history of economic institutions. Her research interests include law and economics, financial economic history, and law and development.

Santarosa's current projects examine, both empirically and theoretically, how legal innovations and political institutions affect firms and financial markets now and throughout history. Prior to joining the Michigan Law faculty, she consulted for the Brazilian Administrative Council for Economic Protection, the Anheuser-Busch InBev M&A division, and for the World Bank-International Finance Corporation.
