Bankruptcy After The Fall: Emerging Issues In The Wake Of The Financial Crisis
The bursting of the housing bubble in 2007, the financial panic of September 2008 culminating in the bankruptcy of Lehman and bailout of AIG, and the ensuing and continuing shocks to the global financial system, have created novel stresses on the bankruptcy system. Judges and practitioners in cases such as Lehman, Chrysler, and Madoff, have been required to address and resolve numerous cutting edge issues, often in very pressured environments. Using a series of hypothetical fact patterns created by our moderator, we shall examine these cutting-edge issues and explore their applicability to the more traditional cases handled by the bankruptcy system.
Professor Douglas G. Baird
University of Chicago Law School
Our moderator will be Professor Douglas G. Baird, the Harry A. Bigelow Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School, where his research and teaching interests focus on corporate reorganizations and contracts. Before joining the faculty in 1980, he was a law clerk to Judge Shirley M. Hufstedler and Judge Dorothy W. Nelson, both of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Professor Baird was Dean of the Law School from 1994 to 1999. He has served as Vice Chair of the National Bankruptcy Conference and is Scholar in Residence of the American College of Bankruptcy. He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and sits on the Board of Directors of the American Law and Economics Association.
