Symposium Announcement - The Globalization of Securities Regulation: Competition or Coordination?
On March 5, 2010, the Corporate Law Center at the University of Cincinnati School of Law will host a symposium entitled: The Globalization of Securities Regulation: Competition or Coordination? The web page describes the event as follows:
After the enactment of Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002, influential voices in the business, political, and academic communities expressed concern that the U.S. markets were losing their competitive advantage. While a number of factors were identified as contributing to this decline, higher U.S. regulatory compliance costs and liability risks were, in particular, singled out. Regulators, in turn, considered proposals that would ease barriers to entry. The 2008 financial meltdown increased awareness of the interconnectedness of markets and the importance of a coordinated approach toward securities regulation. Thus, the Obama administration's Financial Regulatory Reform calls for raising international regulatory standards and improving international cooperation. As policy makers, regulators and academics consider proposals for regulatory reform, how will these considerations—competition and coordination—play out?
Notably, our very own Eric Chaffee will be presenting at the symposium. If you can't make it there, you can view the webcast on the web page linked to above.
