2010 Ross Parsons Corporate Law Address: Fraud on the Market in the US - Can it be Fixed?
15 July 2010
Entitled Fraud on the Market in the US - Can it be Fixed? it will explore whether fraud on the market doctrine in combination with American class action rules represents the odd spectacle of a thriving area of litigation that employs sophisticated consulting firms and financial economists.
"But that, in its current form, finds very little support amongst American legal academics," says Professor Kraakman.
"This address will discuss parties to these actions, the effects of such actions and possible reforms."
The panel will discuss a range of issues relating to the doctrine of fraud on the market in the Australian context.
Professor Jennifer Hill of Sydney Law School will chair the address.
He was previously a clerk for Judge Henry J Friendly of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and a Professor of Law at Yale Law School.
He has also been a visiting professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, New York University Law School and at the University of Tilburg in the Netherlands.
He is a Fellow of the European Corporate Governance Institute.
He has also advised on company law reform in Russia and Vietnam, and has consulted with the Bank of International Settlements on reform of its corporate governance practices.
Professor Kraakman has written numerous articles on corporate law and corporate governance and is principal author of several books.
