Developments in Domestic and International Financial Regulation
In the wake of the financial crisis, there has been a sea change in the regulation of financial institutions, both domestically, and internationally. Of principal importance to both domestic and international financial regulation has been the increased supervision of financial markets and banking institutions, which purports to increase transparency and reduce systemic risk. While the United States and the European Union have taken the most far-reaching steps to regulate domestic and international financial markets, international regulations, such as the Basel III accords, as well as other countries’ domestic regulations, create an as yet unresolved web of financial regulations. Some critics argue that the lack of clarity as to how the statutes will be translated into regulations, the extent of the extraterritorial application and the availability of substituted compliance, as well as the nature of regulations, such as the Volker Rule, imperil the nature of financial regulations as we know it. Others maintain that the critics of the new wave of financial regulation overstate their case, or that the financial services industry actually requires such a monumental change. The 2014 Spring Symposium will examine this debate, focusing on three key aspects of financial regulation, namely 1) the current state of domestic financial regulation; 2) the areas of harmony and discord among different countries’ regulatory regimes, including among U.S. and E.U. financial regulation, Basel III, and other jurisdictions’ domestic regulations; and 3) the impact of financial regulation on the business models and operations of the financial services industry.
The NYU Journal of Law & Business 2014 Spring Symposium will consist of three panels and a lunch keynote speaker. Each panel will be composed of a moderator and 3-4 panelists. Confirmed panelists include academics, attorneys, regulators, and asset managers. Attendees of the Symposium will earn seven Continuing Legal Education credits by the New York State Bar Association, and a transcript of the proceedings of the Symposium will be published in our Journal’s annual Spring Issue.
Reception to follow. Seven (7.0) CLE credits will be offered for full-day participation.
