Conference: Public and Private Regulation of Financial Markets

11-05-2017 9.30 uur - 16.00 uur

Stibbe Beethovenplein 10 1077 WM Amsterdam

To celebrate its fifth anniversary, the Hazelhoff Centre for Financial Law at Leiden University will organize a conference on ‘Public and private regulation of financial markets’. How will recent European rules on bank resolution affect the position of creditors? How may Dutch private law affect the coming recast of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act? And, should financial supervisors have the power to engage in both public and private enforcement?
These and other relevant questions for legal practice and academia will be discussed at the conference ‘Public and private regulation of financial markets’ on 11 May 2017. Whilst the conference will focus on the interaction between public and private regulation, as well as between EU law and national law, significant attention will be paid to the ethics of banking. The lectures will be provided by a diverse group of leading experts, with backgrounds in academia, the Ministry of Finance, financial supervision and the judicature. This conference aims to bring together legal practitioners, academics and students, to exchange thoughts and opinions with regard to the most pressing problems that today’s financial markets face.
The conference forms a culmination of the teaching and research activities conducted by the Hazelhoff Centre over the past five years within its research projects ‘European Integration in Finance’ and ‘Banking in Difficult Times’. Moreover, the conference forms part of the Hazelhoff Centre’s new research project ‘Public and private regulation of financial markets’. Programme and more information:
