Rappaport Center presents panel discussion

Noon - 1:30 p.m. Thursday, April 29, 2010
Faculty Dining Room
Suffolk University Law School
120 Tremont St., Boston

The Suffolk University Business Law Association, the Suffolk University Law Review and the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy present a panel of lawyers and economists to discuss the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999. 

The panel will analyze the consolidation of the financial services industry, the role played by the Act in the current financial crisis, and whether some banks are "too big to fail."  The panelists will also address where we go from here, including a discussion of the concept of "Limited Purpose Banking." 

The panel, moderated by Suffolk Law Professor Kathleen C. Engel, includes: Laurence J. Kotlikoff, professor of economics, Boston University; Lawrence J. White, professor of economics, Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University; and Arthur E. Wilmarth, Jr., professor of law, George Washington University School of Law.
