Like Usha, I hope to see lots of familiar and new faces at the AALS Conference! I will kick off my time there moderating the Securities Regulation Section panel on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. The title of the panel is "The Future of Securities Regulation: Innovation, Regulation and Enforcement," and we have three papers chosen from a stack of very good, anonymized submissions. Our three papers are:
Minor Myers & Charles Korsmo, Aggregation by Acquisition: Replacing Class Actions with a Market for Legal Claims
Hillary Sale & Robert Thompson, Market Intermediation, Publicness, and Securities Class Actions
Urska Velikonja, Reporting Agency Performance: Behind the SEC's Enforcement Statistics
In addition, Jill Fisch and Gordon Smith will comment on each paper.
Hope to see you there!
