Conference: ABA Fifth Annual Institute on Securities Fraud

The American Bar Association


The Fifth Annual National Institute on Securities Fraud

October 7-8, 2010

The Westin New Orleans Canal Place | New Orleans

Securities regulation and enforcement in the aftermath of the global financial crisis continues to cause uncertainty. SEC and DOJ collaboration has increased, with both agencies pursuing aggressive legal theories. Congress has passed the most sweeping changes to the federal securities laws since they were enacted in the 1930s. And state attorney generals continue to assert a significant role in enforcing state securities laws. Are you ready for this?

Join us to prepare to handle this confluence of events raising with significant questions for industry participants and publicly traded companies learn a forward-looking and flexible approach to avoiding missteps.

The 2010 program will squarely address the issues and trends that are shaping the direction of securities regulation and enforcement for decades to come, including the status and potential impact of financial reform legislation, the enforcement trends suggested by recent cases, and the priorities of top enforcers. The program will provide valuable strategic and tactical insights to navigate this ever-changing terrain, from the perspective of thought leaders of every persuasion, including judges, prosecutors, regulators, compliance officers, and defense counsel.

The Securities Fraud National Institute Planning Committee, in cooperation with the Criminal Justice Section White Collar Crime Committee and the Business Law Section, will provide an educational and professional forum to discuss the legal and ethical issues that arise in securities fraud matters.

The Honorable Jed S. Rakoff - U.S. District Court Judge Southern District of New York
