Dartmouth finance professor Kenneth R. French will deliver the Judge Ralph K. Winter Lecture on Corporate Law and Governance on Thursday, November 5, 2009, at Yale Law School. The title of his lecture is “Perspectives on Financial Regulation.” It will take place at 4:30 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge and is free and open to the public. The Winter Lecture is sponsored by the Yale Law School Center for the Study of Corporate Law.

French is the Carl E. and Catherine M. Heidt Professor of Finance at the Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College. He is an expert on the behavior of security prices and investment strategies. His recent research focuses on tests of asset pricing, the tradeoff between risk and return in domestic and international financial markets, and the relation between capital structure and firm value.

Before joining Dartmouth, he was on the faculty of MIT’s Sloan School of Management, the Yale School of Management, and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

Professor French holds a B.S. from Lehigh University, an M.S. and an MBA from the University of Rochester, and a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Rochester.

The Judge Ralph K. Winter Lectureship on Corporate Law and Governance was established by former law clerks and students of Judge Winter to support lectures on corporate law and governance and related topics.
