Each year the Journal hosts two symposia and one lecture. One symposium is held each semester, and the Law Journal Lecture generally occurs in October or early November. Each symposium typically features between ten and fifteen presenters, most of whom will produce an article related to the symposium topic for publication in the Journal. Similarly, the keynote speaker invited to give the annual Law Journal Lecture will write an article for publication.
Financial regulation in the United States is largely a response to financial and economic crises. This symposium brings together some of the nation’s leading experts on securities regulations and corporate governance to discuss possible alternatives to crisis-driven regulation and to evaluate initiatives for sustainable financial regulation.
