The ABA's second National Institute on Securities Fraud is set for October 25-26th at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, D.C. The program is described as follows:
"Is the Enron era of massive financial fraud over? Will the internationalization of securities fraud enforcement ever end? Is the options backdating scandal a blip on the radar screen or a long term full-time employment act for the defense bar? Learn insights from the very best of the profession -- judges, prosecutors, regulators, academics, compliance officers and defense counsel – about what to expect next and how to prepare for these new developments in the ever present, headline-making area of securities fraud. The Second Annual Securities Fraud National Institute will provide an in-depth, cutting edge and rewarding educational experience for all practitioners, including prosecutors, regulators, compliance officers and defense counsel. Top officials and luminaries from the SEC, DOJ, law schools, the judiciary, corporations and top-tier law firms will share their insights concerning a multitude of important subjects including:
• How in-house lawyers evolved from counselors to targets
• Prosecution theories that do not hold up on appeal
• The long international arm of US securities laws
• The importance of loss calculations in both civil and criminal cases
• The return of insider trading"
