 Watch Video (Quicktime required)

教授理查德·巴克斯鲍姆 ’53 has been a keen observer of the business law terrain for five decades. Prof. Buxbaum shared his perspective on the development of business law in California and the role played by Boalt Hall in that evolution.  Three generations of Boalt Hall faculty members were and continue to be instrumental in reshaping many aspects of corporate law and securities regulation in California, across the United States and around the world. At this special lunchtime talk, Professor Buxbaum provided insights into the interplay among the legal academy, policymakers and the commercial world that will help us better understand the current legal and regulatory environment governing the business community and our collective efforts to emerge from the Great Recession.

America’s Broken Retirement Plans and Pension System: Another “Gift” From Wall Street
William Lerach
boalt大厅 - 房间110

 Watch Video (Quicktime required)

William Lerach discussed his perspectives on the relationship between the deregulation of our financial markets and several wealth destruction events that resulted in massive losses to the nation’s public, private and individual pension systems and plans. These losses have gravely impaired the finances of these retirement plans — leaving many of them, he argued, with unfunded obligations that are so pervasive that they now constitute a major threat to the financial future of our country. Mr. Lerach also discussed what, if anything, he believes can be done to avoid or ameliorate the crisis that would arise from the financial collapse of our pension systems.

These protective measures coincided with the onset of the global financial crisis and a rapid decline in China’s export markets.  The combination of more protective laws and greater economic volatility led to a rapid and unprecedented increase in labor conflict, including legal filings and large-scale strikes and demonstrations.  In the wake of China’s recovery from the crisis, this conflict has continued.  Workers are more aware of their new rights; trade unions have been encouraged by the government to do more to protect workers; and a labor shortage in manufacturing has emboldened workers to press for higher wages and better conditions.

New Credit Card Regulations: Impacts and Implications
Lauren Bowne, Thomas Brown and Katherine Porter

This year ushers in a wave of changes to the system of lending in the United States. The major provisions of the Credit CARD Act, which went into effect in February, set new standards for interest rate increases, credit card marketing and disclosure requirements. In addition, under new rules promulgated by the Federal Reserve, starting this summer banks must ask consumers whether they want to opt-in for overdraft programs.

These new rules have been praised by consumer advocacy groups as necessary steps in the right direction, and sharply criticized by banks as unnecessary measures that will cost a crippled industry billions of dollars and result in less credit to those who need it most.

This event was co-sponsored with the Boalt Consumer Law Society (BCLS).

This was a great opportunity to learn a business executive’s perspective about what skills and knowledge she expected her lawyers to have and contributions she expected her lawyers to make to the deal (planning, implementing and post-closing).

休息救助的下降
Featured Speaker: Stephen Bainbridge, Ken Taymor and John P. Hunt

As the economy crumbled in 2008, the government intervened to “save” financial institutions that were “too big to fail.”  This unprecedented action generated a multitude of legal, economic, and political questions; perhaps none more important than “will it work?” With the decision to intervene behind us, it is now time to evaluate the impacts and implications for law, business, and the economy as a whole.

Competing in China: Antitrust, Anticorruption, & Industrial Policy
主讲人:弥敦道灌木, O’Melveny & Myers 

 Watch Video (Quicktime Required)

China’s leadership enters 2010 with a mammoth stimulus program onstream and mounting (often conflicting pressures) to restructure China’s hybrid “command-market” system and its role in the global economy. At the central government’s disposal are new instruments such as the Antimonopoly Law, older tools such as the Law on Guarding State Secrets, and the state’s tremendous influence over Chinese finance and commerce. Foreign firms active in China face new regulatory challenges, from the antitrust obstacles of acquiring Chinese firms to the corruption risks of dealing with the state sector. Mr. Bush explored the intersection of China’s evolving antitrust, anticorruption, trade, and industrial policies. Mr. Bush is a partner in the Antitrust & Competition Practice Group of O’Melveny & Myers LLP. He currently serves as the General Counsel of the American Chamber of Commerce in China.
