Chapman University School of Law To Host Symposium on Dodd-Frank
On January 27 & 28, the Chapman Law Review will be hosting a symposium entitled: "From Wall Street to Main Street: The Future of Financial Regulation." You can find the schedule here, and I think you'll agree it looks like it should be an excellent conference. I'm looking forward to all of it, particularly Peter Huang's presentation on "How Behavioral Economics & Economic Theory Can Improve Financial Regulation." I am very grateful to Peter for encouraging me to submit a proposal for this symposium, and I'll be presenting my latest work-in-progress: "The Dodd-Frank Corporation: More Than a Nexus of Contracts?" (All credit for the first half of the title goes to Frank Partnoy, who was kind enough to let me steal it--though that should in no way incriminate him in terms of the substance of the project.) If you're a reader of this blog and attending the conference, please stop by and say hello.
PS--I'm currently looking out my window at about 8 inches of snow, with 2-4 more expected today. So, I have to admit that the great presentations aren't the only reason I'm looking forward to this conference, as should be clear when you view the first picture greeting you here.
