An esteemed panel of regulators, scholars, and lawyers gathered at Columbia Law School on March 29 to discuss Securities Market Issues for the 21st Century, a new e-book on the most important areas of inquiry for securities regulation and the financial markets. The book marks the culmination of the first phase in a multi-year New Special Study of the securities markets being conducted by the Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets, a joint initiative of Columbia Law School and Columbia Business School. The study is the first of its kind in more than five decades and will ultimately result in a comprehensive report that regulators and members of Congress can use as a guide to future financial regulation.
The March 29 discussion featured Columbia Law School Professor John C. Coffee Jr., Mylan Chief Legal Officer and former SEC Commissioner Daniel M. Gallagher, SEC Commissioner and former Columbia Law School Professor Robert J. Jackson Jr., Cleary Gottlieb partner Jeffrey D. Karpf; Georgetown University Law Center Professor and former SEC special counsel Donald C. Langevoort, Washington University School of Law Professor Hillary A. Sale, and Babson College Professor Erik Sirri. New York University Professor Joel Hasbrouck moderated the discussion.
