The Institute will host the Winter School on Law and Finance at Columbia University’s Global Center in Paris on January 6-9, 2014. The school is designed as a four-day intensive offering to familiarize students, postdocs, and young researchers with theories about the relation between law and finance, including new theoretical approaches such as the Legal Theory of Finance (LTF). The course, taught by Katharina Pistor, Columbia University, Brigitte Haar, Goethe University Frankfurt, and Dan Awrey, University of Oxford, will combine theoretical lectures with case studies that will introduce students to contractual documents and legal architectures of the global financial system. Syllabus and schedule here.
The school will precede the annual workshop of the Global Law in Finance Network (GLawFiN), which is co-funded by the Institute and the Max Planck Society. School participants are welcome to attend the open Workshop on Finance and Justice on Friday, January 10, 2014.
