The Practice of the Future: Technology & Capital Markets
February 20, 2019
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
The event will examine the impact of technology on the structure and functioning of capital markets, the challenges law firms specializing in capital markets will face, how clients can best coordinate responses to the changes, how law students and young lawyers can develop skills preparing them for this changing practice area, and how law schools can adapt their curriculum to rapid changes in this field. Partners from Cleary Gottlieb, Cravath, Davis Polk, Simpson Thacher, and Sullivan & Cromwell will take part in a panel discussion moderated by Cleary Gottlieb partner Craig Brod.
This discussion of technology issues within the field of capital markets will help to inform the research of the New Special Study of the Securities Markets Project, a multi-year study examining securities markets spearheaded by the Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets. This event is co-sponsored by Cleary Gottlieb, the Columbia Law School/Columbia Business School Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets, and Bloomberg Law.
