University of Cincinnati College of Law Corporate Law Center and Law Review's Twenty Second Annual Symposium:
New Models of Regulating the Financial Markets: The SEC's Future as It Turns 75
April 3, 2009 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The U.S. financial markets and financial institutions have long enjoyed a reputation for promoting capital formation, market stability, and investor protection. The financial meltdown and other market events, however, have renewed criticisms of the U.S. regulatory model as outmoded, anticompetitive, and ineffective. In addition, the collapse of major financial services companies and the Bernard Madoff scandal have seriously damaged the Securities and Exchange Commission’s reputation as regulator of the securities markets.
The 75th Anniversary of the Securities and Exchange Commission marks an appropriate occasion for an examination of these issues. The Symposium’s speakers will address proposals for regulatory reform from a variety of perspectives, both academic and practical.
