Financial Institutions Palooza at the Association of American Law Schools Annual Meeting

posted by Anna Gelpern

The Section on Financial Institutions and Consumer Financial Services will have a record four events at this weekend's Association of American Law Schools Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. The theme is rethinking and reviving the field of financial institutions on the ground and in the academy. We will take stock of reforms so far and consider the impact of the crises in the United States and Europe, but also will take a long-term view of the field from diverse theoretical, policy, and methodological perspectives.

The program begins on Saturday morning with a big-think "revival" panel featuring Jill FischHowell JacksonKim KrawiecPat McCoyKatharina Pistor, and Annelise Riles, immediately proceeding to the lunch keynote by Governor Sarah Bloom Raskin, introduced by Arthur Wilmarth. Next comes an offsite policy roundtable moderated by Adam Feibelman, with regulators and policy makers from different agencies. The weekend program  features five academic paper presentations on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, focusing on the state of financial reform and the way forward. Heidi Schooner will moderate the Call for Papers panel.
