Associate Professor Wulf Kaal is taking his expertise on the road this fall, with upcoming presentations at the Canadian Law and Economics Association annual meeting in Toronto, the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and the American Bankruptcy Institute Law Review Symposium, “Hedge Funds in Bankruptcy,” held at St. John’s University in Queens, N.Y.
A leading expert on hedge fund regulation in the United States and the European Union, Kaal will present to CLEA on Sept. 28 and 29 about “Dynamic Regulation of the Financial Services Industry” and “The Impact of Compliance Cost of Financial Regulation – Evidence from the Private Fund Industry.”
On Oct. 3, Kaal will return to Minnesota to present “Dynamic Regulation of the Financial Services Industry” as part of the University of Minnesota’s Faculty Works in Progress lecture series.
He will follow up those appearances with a paper presentation Oct. 4 at St. John’s University, where the American Bankruptcy Institute Law Review Symposium focuses on the growing role hedge funds now play in the bankruptcy process, and assessing the desirability of maintaining, expanding, limiting or otherwise changing this role by means of changes in bankruptcy law, policy or practice.
A tenured associate professor of law at the University of St. Thomas School of Law, Kaal uses empirical methods to investigate the effects of financial regulation and the strategic behavior of private fund advisers. His theoretical research focuses on the use of finance and economic theory to analyze and inform financial and regulatory policy. His work has gained national attention, and has been published in leading peer-reviewed law and finance journals in the United States and Europe.
