Upcoming Symposium: The Fallout from the Bailout, March 20

The 2008 government bailout was unprecedented. Legal and business professionals are now unraveling the causes and consequences to address how this massive policy change could affect their businesses. The University of Dayton School of Law is very pleased to host one of the first legal symposia on the economic crisis, The Fallout from the Bailout: The Impact of the 2008 Bailout on Lending Regulation, Securities Regulation and Business Ethics, on March 20.

This symposium, sponsored by Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP Program in Law, Religion & Ethics and the University of Dayton School of Law Project for Law & Business Ethics, examines government bailouts of private institutions with a focus on the financial sector. Our goal is to draw together academics, practitioners, and regulators to have a frank and full discussion about the legal implications and consequences of the government’s use of bailouts as a means to combat the current financial crisis.

Confirmed speakers include Harvey Pitt, former chair of the SEC; Steven Ramirez, Professor of Law and Director of the Business Law Center at Loyola University Chicago School of Law; Jon Hoak, Vice President, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer at Hewlett-Packard; and Peter J. Sherry, Jr., Corporate Secretary and Associate General Counsel at Ford Motor Company, and UDSL graduate.
