Convened by Dr David Chaikin and Dr Juliette Overland, Discipline of Business Law

The digital age has brought disruption to the many markets in which we operate. Do technological advances aid or impede market misconduct? Are regulatory tools aimed at minimising market misconduct effective? Are corporate crimes such as insider trading and money laundering moving beyond the scope of detection and enforcement? How do we respond to the use of blockchain technology? What is the future for markets and misconduct in the technological age? These are some of the questions which will be tackled by our expert speakers from the Discipline of Business Law at the University of Sydney Business School when we are joined by eminent international scholars, senior executives from ASX200 corporations, experienced legal and tax practitioners, and regulatory experts in the various market domains.

There is no charge for this event however an RSVP is required by Friday 3 November 2017. Please register here to attend.
