Northwestern’s Daniel Fischel to Discuss “Markets and Scandals” April 23

Daniel Fischel, Professor of Law and Business at Northwestern University School of Law, will deliver the Judge Ralph K. Winter Lecture on Corporate Law and Governance on Monday, April 23, at Yale Law School. His topic will be “Markets and Scandals: Enron and Beyond.” The lecture will take place at 4:30 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge.

Prior to joining Northwestern Law’s faculty in 2006, Professor Fischel was the Lee and Brena Freeman Professor of Law and Business at the University of Chicago. He was a member of the Northwestern Law faculty from 1980 to 1984.

He holds a B.A. from Cornell University, an M.A. from Brown University and a J.D. from the University of Chicago. After earning his law degree, he clerked for Thomas E. Fairchild, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and then for Justice Potter Stewart of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Professor Fischel’s chief interests include corporations, corporate finance and the regulation of financial markets. He is the author of numerous articles in these fields, including, most recently, "The Use of Trading Models to Estimate Aggregate Damages in Securities Fraud Litigation:  An Update."

The Judge Ralph 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.
