*CANCELED* Yale Law School Center for the Study of Corporate Law - Sullivan & Cromwell Conference on Challenges in Global Financial Services

Dear Conference Participants:  

I’m very sorry to say that, as a result of all of the damage that Hurricane Sandy has caused, and the fact that service on both Metro North and Amtrak has been suspended indefinitely, along with other transportation delays, we’ve decided we have no other option at this point but to cancel the Conference.  We’re looking into possibly rescheduling for some time during Fall, 2013, and will let you know if we are able to work out another date.  

I’m certain this would have been an exciting conference, and we are very much hoping that we will be able to reschedule for next year.  

With best wishes,   Roberta
