Senator Evan Bayh to Speak at Law School's Event on Financial Crisis
Former Indiana Senator Evan Bayh will speak at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law during a national symposium to take place April 5, 2012. The event is titled “Law and the Financial Crisis,” and 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.
Senator Bayh’s lecture will focus on his experience with the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs during the financial crisis, and his chair position on the Subcommittee on Security and International Trade and Finance. Senator Bayh also served on the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions, and Subcommittee on Securities, Insurance, and Investment.
The symposium is sponsored by 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. Andrea Kochert is editor of a special issue of the Law Review that will contain the proceedings of the symposium.
