The Center on Business Law & Policy and The New York Law School Law Review are proud to present:

Fear, Fraud, and the Future of Financial Regulation

With a new administration and a host of new financial problems, the question is what type of regulations will arise to combat them. The conference will bring both academic and a practitioner's perspective on the new challenges facing the regulations of the financial markets. Topics to be discussed include: securitization, derivatives and the credit markets: financial regulations and disclosure; credit default swaps and the evolution of OTC regulations; the "Let's Make a Deal" complexion of the bailouts; the role of the Securities and Exchange Commission in risk management; the Group of 30 Report on future financial regulations; the controversy over executive compensation, among others. These new market realities and challenges are the subject of our conference: "Fear, Fraud, and the Future of Financial Regulations: Beyond the Market Meltdown of '08," sponsored by the Center on Business Law & Policy and the New York Law School Law Review.
