Dynamite Program -- AALS Section on Financial Institutions & Consumer Financial Services
Posted by Erik Gerding

Note that the earlybird deadline for registering for the AALS Annual Meeting is coming up next week.

The AALS Section on Financial Institutions & Consumer Financial Services has put together a great program this year:

 Sat. Jan. 7, 10:30 am-12:15 pm: Reviving Financial Institutions [Program # 6220]


  • Jill E. Fisch, University of Pennsylvania Law School
  • Howell E. Jackson, Harvard Law School
  • Kimberly D. Krawiec, Duke University School of Law
  • Patricia A. McCoy, University of Connecticut School of Law (currently on leave at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau)
  • Katharina Pistor, Columbia Law School
  • Annelise Riles, Cornell University Law School
  • Peter Conti-Brown, Stanford Law School

Moderator: Anna Gelpern, American University Washington College of Law

This panel is part of a project to engage the legal academy in sustained theoretical and policy contributions to the regulation of financial institutions. We will step back from the daily news of reform to analyze the functions of today's financial institutions, revisiting the rationale for their regulation: what they do for their immediate constituents (debtors, creditors, shareholders) and for the economy as a whole (savings intermediation, liquidity, monetary policy transmission), as well as the risks they present. As we put the evolving U.S. regime in historical and comparative perspective, we will consider whether the focus on institutions detracts from regulating instruments, markets, economic functions and risks--and how to reconcile the proliferating regulatory objectives.

Sat. Jan. 7, 12:15-1:30 pm: Section Lunch [Program # 1425]

[The section has a fantastic lunch time speaker.  I will announce the name in the blog as soon as I am allowed.] 

Sun. Jan 8, 9:00-10:45 am: Rubber Hits Road: Implementing Dodd-Frank amid Reform Fatigue (Call for Papers) [Program # 7060]

Authors will explore the state of financial reform implementation in a still-weak national and global economy, against reform fatigue, polarization, and the risks of regulatory capture. Among other topics, the papers address the challenges inherent in moving from the legislative to the administrative realm, meshing domestic, regional, and international initiatives, and institutional design for markets and regulation. The session is an opportunity to look at specific rulemakings in detail, as well as to address larger questions about the course of reform after laws are made.
