AALS Financial Institutions/Consumer Finance Meetings: Great Line-ups
Posted by Erik Gerding

The AALS Financial Institutions and Consumer Financial Services Section has two great programs lined up for the Annual Meeting on Friday, January 7th.  Both meetings will be in the Parc 55 Wyndham. 

First, the breakfast meeting from 7:00 to 8:30 am has a stellar cast that does the impossible of making the early hour and a $55 breakfast price worth it.  Heidi Schooner (Catholic) will be moderating the following panel as it discusses financial regulatory reform:

Cristie Ford (University of British Columbia Faculty of Law);

David Hyman (University of Illinois College of Law);

William E. Kovacic (Federal Trade Commission, Washington, DC);

Brett H. Mc Donnell (University of Minnesota School of Law); and

Annelise Riles (Cornell Law School)

Then, from 4:00 Pm to 5:45 on Friday, Anna Gelpern (American Univ.) will be moderating the following panel of scholars presenting works that responded to a call for papers (there is NO separate fee for this afternoon meeting):

William A. Birdthistle (Chicago-Kent College of Law): Breaking Bucks in Money Market Funds

Jim Hawkins (University of Houston Law Center): Regulating on the Fringe: Reexamining the Link Between Fringe Banking and Financial Distress  (a draft of which was featured in our own Conglomerate Junior Scholar Workshop this last summer)

Adam J. Levitin (Georgetown University Law Center): Explaining the Housing Bubble (with Susan Wachter)

Alan M. White (Valparaiso University School of Law): Welfare Economics And Regulation Of Small-Loan Credit: Lessons From Microlending In Developing Nations

Sarah P. Woo (New York University School of Law): Micro-Prudence, Macro-Risk: Regulatory Bankruptcy
