The Dodd-Frank Act and the Road Ahead for Financial Regulatory Reform

Video

 

Thursday and Friday,
November 11 and 12, 2010

The Dodd-Frank Act is the most far-reaching piece of financial services legislation enacted since the Great Depression. C-LEAF's second annual financial regulatory reform symposium will assess the likely impacts of this massive 2,300-plus page law, focusing especially on the areas of consumer protection, the regulation of large, complex, "too big to fail" financial institutions, and whether the act adequately addresses the causes of the recent financial crisis, did not go far enough, or perhaps went too far.

In addition to the Friday morning symposium, a Thursday evening reception for symposium participants, students and other members of the GW Law community will be held.
