Securities Litigation, Corporate Governance – Bolzano, Italy

The Free University of Bozen-Bolzano is hosting Cases in Securities Litigation and Corporate Governance, Nov. 30 – Dec. 1, 2007. The conference is the inaugural conference of the Center of Research in Law and Economics (CRELE) in the School of Economics and Management.

The aim of the conference is to bring together academics and securities litigation practitioners to discuss the law and economics of some of the most significant US and European recent cases concerning securities law and corporate governance. Court decisions will be discussed from different angles and national perspectives, in order either to outline a common core of judicial trends in this area or to highlight differences both at transatlantic and European level. The format is the following: presentation of the relevant case, launch of the discussion by two commentators, general discussion. A translation into English of the cases to be discussed will be circularized in advance among the participants.
