The Center on Law and Finance has two primary objectives. The first is to advance the research and understanding of how law interacts with—and shapes—financial systems. It does this by supporting conferences, speakers, academic programming, and research on law and finance. The second objective is to connect our research concretely to the real world. Continuing the Law School’s commitment to the practical application of legal theory, the Center holds events that foster a meaningful dialogue between academics and practitioners.
Our first annual report outlines our goals and objectives, summarizes the many events we held from 2020 to 2022, and looks ahead to the events we are planning in the near future.

GameStop, hedge funds, and Robinhood are all over the news. How much do you understand about what’s happening—and what it means for the future of securities? Professors Anthony J. Casey, M. Todd Henderson, and Joshua C. Macey discuss.
Professor Anthony Casey had just launched the Law School’s Center on Law and Finance when the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020. He had two events in the works: an in-person conference on judicial valuation and another on international insolvency; the valuation conference, scheduled for March 2020, was supposed to be the Center’s public debut.
