2017-04-doc5 First lustrum of Hazelhoff Centre for Financial Law

The Hazelhoff Centre for Financial Law at Leiden University celebrates its 5th anniversary, with an international conference on ‘Public and private regulation of financial markets’. The main theme of the conference is the interaction between public and private regulation, as well as between EU law and national law. Also, significant attention will be paid to the ethics of banking. Leading experts will contribute, such as Frank Elderson (Executive Director at the Dutch Central Bank), prof. Matthias Lehmann (Director of the Institute for International Private and Comparative Law at the University of Bonn), prof. Jens-Hinrich Binder (Professor of Private Law, Commercial and Corporate Law at the University of Tübingen), Rego Boer (Policy advisor and senior legislative lawyer at the Dutch Ministry of Finance), prof. Femke de Vries (Board Member of the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets; professor of Regulatory Enforcement, University of Groningen), Eveline Ruinaard (Chairperson of the Dutch Institute for Financial Disputes), and professors Matthias Haentjens, Pim Rank and Rogier Raas, the leadership of the Hazelhoff Centre. The conference aims to bring together legal practitioners, academics and students, to exchange thoughts and opinions with regard to the most pressing problems that today’s financial markets face: how will recent European rules on bank resolution affect the position of creditors? How may Dutch private law affect the coming recast of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act? And, should financial supervisors have the power to engage in both public and private enforcement? Date: Thursday 11 May 2017, 09.30 – 16.00; location: Stibbe, Beethovenplein 10, 1077 WM Amsterdam.
