Fred Dunbar Memorial Lecture in Law and Economics at Fordham Law School with Sheila Bair

New York, New York
08 April 2013
Hosted By: Fordham Law School in conjunction with NERA Economic Consulting

The Honorable Sheila C. Bair, former Chairperson of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, delivered the inaugural address of the Fred Dunbar Memorial Lecture in Law and Economics at Fordham Law School on 8 April 2013. The annual lecture was established to honor Dr. Fred Dunbar's pioneering role in securities litigation: raising the standard for economists' expert testimony from one comfortable with subjective opinion to one emphasizing objective, scientifically-based analysis. Fordham Law School is hosting the series in conjunction with NERA, the firm that Dr. Dunbar called home for three decades and whose Securities and Finance Practice he founded. Dr. Dunbar passed away in February 2012. Ms. Bair served as the 19th Chairperson of the FDIC from 2006-2011, during one of the most difficult periods of financial instability the US has ever faced. She was instrumental in establishing programs that restored confidence and stability to financial markets after the 2008 financial crisis.
