CALL FOR PAPERS:
AN EVALUATION OF RECENT SECURITIES LAW REGULATORY REFORMS AND LITIGATION

AALS SECURITIES REGULATION SECTION MEETING--Jan. 2-6, 2008 in New York City

      After the collapse of Enron, Adelphia, Worldcom and other
      high flyers of the 1990s, there was a crisis of confidence
      in American business and securities regulators. Numerous
      federal and state enforcement and regulatory actions
       occurred in the wake of these scandals. These included: theStack_newspapers
      passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002; the research
      analyst prosecutions by the New York Attorney General and
      the Securities and Exchange Commission and the reform of
      the regulation of analysts; and prosecutions of mutual
      funds and reform of mutual fund governance. A torrent of
      criminal prosecutions and civil litigation under Rule 10b-5
      and other securities law statutes also occurred.

      Numerous law review articles have been written, explaining,
      praising or criticizing these developments. Currently,
      several high-powered decision makers have asserted that theWool_socks_1
      U.S. capital markets are becoming less competitive than
      overseas markets due, in part, to the U.S. regulatory and
      litigation environment. Further, there has been a push
      back in the courts as to expansive interpretations by the
      SEC of its authority and expansive district court opinions
      regarding the reach of the anti-fraud provisions.

      We are seeking papers for the January 2008 meeting of the
      AALS Securities Regulation Section in New York discussing
      any aspect of these developments. A broad range of topics91643_65432233_2
      is possible, and we hope to have a lively discussion on
       whether regulatory and litigation developments have gone
      too far, not far enough or have appropriately dealt with
      the problems which led to the 1990s stock market bubble and
      its collapse. A special issue of the Brooklyn Journal of
      Corporate, Financial & Commercial Law
will be devoted to
      these papers.

      PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:

      Please submit an abstract of any proposed papers and any
      available drafts by March 30, 2007, either by email or post,
