The University of Cincinnati College of Law presents its annual Corporate Law Symposium tomorrow April 3 on New Models of Regulating the Financial Markets: The SEC's Future as it Turns 75. Here is a brief description:
April 3, 2009 — 8:00 a.m. - 4 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.
Speakers include James Cox (Duke), Adam Pritchard (Michigan), Roberta Karmel (Brooklyn), Jerry Markham (Florida International), Olufunmilayo Arewa (Northwestern), Janis Sarra (British Columbia) and Jonathan Sokobin (SEC Risk Assessment).
The event is being webcast. For further information, see the website.
