American Univ. Conference on "Law, Finance and Legitimacy After Financial Reform"
Posted by Erik Gerding

Our frequent guest, Anna Gelpern, and the editors of the new American University Business Law Review have put together a great conference on financial reform this coming Friday, April 8th in the nation’s capital. The conference theme is “Law, Finance, and Legitimacy after Financial Reform.”

You can register here.

Here are some of the highlights. The lunch will feature as keynote speaker Brooksley Born, former Chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and member of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.

The conference will also feature three scholarly panels:

Panel #1 – REGULATION OF FINANCE: Presentations will focus on Dodd-Frank’s living will provisions, transparency in financial regulation, and a retrospective look at the Panic of 1873.

Presenters: Adam Feibelman (Tulane University), Caroline Bradley (University of Miami), Arthur Wilmarth (George Washington University), Erik Gerding (University of New Mexico) Panelists: Melissa Jacoby (University of North Carolina), Mehrsa Baradaran (Brigham Young University), Daniel Schwarcz (University of Minnesota)

Panel #2 – FINANCIAL REGULATION AND LEGITIMACY: Presentations will focus on loopholes in legislation, regulation of information quality, important truths of Too Big To Fail, and the regulation of risk management strategies.

Presenters: Brett McDonnell (University of Minnesota), Richard Painter and Claire Hill (University of Minnesota), Onnig Dombalagian (Tulane University), Kristin Johnson (Seton Hall University) Panelists: Jose Gabilondo (Florida International University), Peter Conti-Brown (Rock Center for Corporate Governance at Stanford University), Lisa Fairfax (George Washington University)


Panelists: Eric Pan (Cardozo University, Securities and Exchange Commission), Saule Omarova (University of North Carolina), Heidi Schooner (Catholic University), Chris Brummer (Georgetown University).

I'm looking forward to hearing the presentations.  I'll also be presenting on the legal history of the Crisis of 1873 in Germany, Austria, and the United States.  If you are there, come say hello.  We'll have great fun saying Gruenderboom and Gruenderkrach!
