McKinney Law School to Examine Law and the Financial Crisis
The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law will host a major national symposium on “Law and the Financial Crisis” on April 5, 2013, said Andrea Kochert, a law student who is directing the symposium.
Kochert said the symposium will examine the connection between law and the financial crisis by pursuing three inquiries: (1) law’s role in instigating the financial crisis; (2) law’s effectiveness in addressing the financial crisis; and (3) law’s potential in preventing the next financial crisis.
“While the financial crisis is by no means entirely behind us,” Kochert said, “it is not too early to begin to examine some of the many connections between law and the disastrous impact that the financial crisis had on our economy in general and millions of businesses and individuals in particular. We look forward to welcoming to the Robert H. McKinney School of Law the leading professors of finance and business law as well as prominent figures from business and government who will participate in the symposium.”
The symposium will be conducted under the auspices of the Indiana Law Review , a legal periodical edited and managed by students of IU McKinney Law that publishes scholarly articles by professors, judges, and practitioners from throughout the country. Kochert is editor of a special issue of the Law Review that will contain the proceedings of the symposium.
