    About the Symposium
    A number of “safe harbors” or “immunities” are currently incorporated into the Bankruptcy Code and international instruments such as the UNCITRAL Legislative Guide. The articulated concern that motivated the safe harbors was clearance or intermediary risk. The 2008 financial crisis and the collapse of Lehman Brothers prompted a second set of adjustments at the intersection of the bankruptcy and bank resolution regimes that were aimed at addressing the “Too Big To Fail” risk. The legislative response to Lehman’s failure took the form of Title II of the Dodd-Frank bill.

    The goal of this symposium will be to explore the relationship between systemic risk in the banking system and in enterprise bankruptcy, and domestic and international approaches to harmonizing the various regimes.

    Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation.
