2007 Securities Regulation Conference in the Works

Leaders of the Law and Business Program at Willamette University have assembled an unparalleled group of securities experts for the 2007 Willamette Securities Regulation Conference.

Eight current and former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) officials, including three former SEC general counsels, and a top securities regulator for the state of Oregon will participate in the program. Leading securities attorneys from across the country and nationally recognized business law scholars from Willamette University will round out the four panel discussions.

Panel topics will include new developments in disclosure regulation, securities enforcement and securities litigation, as well as future trends to watch for in 2008. Helane L. Morrison, director of the SEC’s regional office in San Francisco, will present the keynote address at the conference luncheon.

The one-day conference will be held Oct. 18, 2007, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., at the Multnomah Athletic Club in Portland. Oregon and Washington Continuing Legal Education credits are pending.
