About the speaker:

    Jill Fisch is a nationally known scholar, whose work focuses on the intersection of business and law, including the role of regulation and litigation in addressing limitations in the disciplinary power of the capital markets. Her 1997 paper, Retroactivity and Legal Change: An Equilibrium Approach (Harvard Law Review), introduced a new framework for retroactivity analysis that could apply to both adjudication and legislation. Her 2003 paper (with Stephen Choi), How to Fix Wall Street: A Voucher Financing Proposal for Securities Intermediaries (Yale Law Journal), proposed a voucher financing mechanism to increase accountability for securities intermediaries such as research analysts, proxy advisors and credit rating agencies.
