U.S. Attorney Hogsett to Speak at IU McKinney Symposium on Law and the Financial Crisis


Joe Hogsett, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, is among the distinguished group of academic, government, and business leaders who will make presentations at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law’s national symposium on “Law and the Financial Crisis” in Indianapolis on April 5, 2013.

Hogsett, the federal government’s chief law enforcement officer for central and southern Indiana, will participate in a panel slated to examine law’s effectiveness in addressing the financial crisis. With Barnes & Thornburg partner Mark Stuaan, Hogsett will discuss the role of criminal and civil enforcement actions in combatting financial misconduct. They will be joined on the panel by Professor Cheryl Block of Washington University School of Law, who will offer insights on the Dodd-Frank Act’s contribution to addressing problems identified during the financial crisis. The panel discussion will be moderated by Professor Tod Perry of the IU Kelley School of Business.

The Symposium will be preceded by a dinner on Thursday, April 4, at which Kevin T. Kabat, vice chairman and CEO of Fifth Third Bancorp, will provide “Perspectives on the Financial Crisis.” Kabat has won praise for his guiding of Fifth Third through the financial crisis. The dinner will begin at 7 p.m. in the law school’s Atrium.

Former Indiana Senator Evan Bayh will present the keynote address at 8:30 a.m. to begin the symposium, titled “Law and the Financial Crisis,” on April 5 in the law school’s Wynne Courtroom. Senator Bayh’s lecture will focus on his experience as a member of the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs during the financial crisis.

Other panel discussions during the event will examine the connection between law and the financial crisis by pursuing law’s role in causing the crisis; and law’s potential in preventing the next one.

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.
