The Financial Crisis of 2008: Law and Policy
(SRP, WP, BID, SEM)The financial crisis of 2008 was a watershed in American financial history. We look at the financial crisis and its aftermath from a predominantly legal perspective. Topics include why financial regulators were unable to stop the crisis from happening; how they responded to the crisis; and the policy and legal response to the crisis. Special attention will be given to the legal basis of the crisis response, and to the post-crisis litigation.
