Securities regulation institute in San Diego
In southern California for the 41st Annual SRI Conference — perhaps the nation’s premier meeting of securities lawyers and business professionals. I was proud to welcome the distinguished conferees and also to introduce keynote speaker, Mary Jo White, chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Northwestern Law has partnered successfully with the SRI for many years. It is a brilliant marriage, as it brings together the best and the brightest in the dynamic world of securities law while enabling us to highlight NU Law’s innovative programs in law and business. The SRI represents an important component of our professional outreach efforts.
These outreach efforts are especially critical as law schools respond creatively to the shifting winds of the legal market. Our core endeavor will always be comprehensive legal education for future lawyers. But it will be increasingly vital to connect our initiatives and our talented faculty with practicing lawyers and other professionals in the private and public sectors. The SRI is one particularly wide-ranging and prestigious element of this outreach strategy. And there are many other substantial projects underway.
