Symposium – Protecting the Public While Fostering Innovation and Entrepreneurship: First Principles for Optimal Regulation

In a one-day symposium, hosted by the law school’s Center for Intellectual Property & Entrepreneurship and Business, Entrepreneurship, and Tax Law Review, a distinguished group of panelists will consider both substantive principles for regulating effectively in particular areas (e.g., financial markets, telecommunications, prescription drugs, network technologies) and broader procedural questions about how regulations should be crafted. What substantive principles should guide policymakers as they craft rules to protect the public? And what institutional structures should constrain the process of regulating?

The symposium will feature an address by Commissioner Hester Peirce of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The program begins at 9 am on Friday, February 8, 2019, at Hulston Hall on the University of Missouri campus. The event is free and open to the public. It has been approved for 4.8 hours of CLE credit in Missouri.
