I was thrilled to be with so many wonderful colleagues and students (pictured above) at the Tennessee Journal of Law and Policy's symposium at UT Law last Friday. The symposium, "Insider Trading: Stories from the Attorneys," featured presentations about famous and not-so-famous insider trading cases. Presenters included Michael Guttentag (Loyola, Los Angeles), me, Jeremy Kidd (Mercer), Ellen Podgor (Stetson), John Anderson (Mississippi College), Eric Chaffee (Toledo), Kevin Douglas (Scalia), and Donna Nagy (Maurer). The papers presented highlight a variety of salient issues (including observations about the impact of gender and sexual orientation in specific cases or types of cases) involving or touching insider trading regulation. They are being published in 2020 by the Tennessee Journal of Law & Policy.
The idea for the symposium came from a Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) discussion session convened last summer by John and me. I described it in this post. Let me or John know if you are working in the insider trading area and would like to join us for our 2020 SEALS discussion group, "Insider Trading: Is It All about the Money?" The SEALS conference is scheduled to be held July 30 - August 5, 2020. The discussion is always lively!
