Parsons seminar: The Dodd-Frank Act

25 January 2011

The Dodd-Frank Act - Whistleblowers and the Orderly Liquidation Authority

To register please click here


The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (July 2010) promises to promote financial stability, end "too big to fail", and protect consumers from abusive financial services practices. Taking these aims seriously as criteria to judge the Act's success, the seminar will investigate whether the rules for whistleblowers' incentives and protection (sections 748 & 922) and the Orderly Liquidation Authority (Title ll) may be plausibly deemed successful against their own aims.

Speaker: Joseph Tanega, University of Westminster, United Kingdom
