This Friday, February 1, JLB is proud to host its 2013 Annual Spring Symposium on “Developments in the Law of International Project Finance.” The event will take place in Greenberg Lounge, located in Vanderbilt Hall on the NYU School of Law Campus, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and will be immediately followed by a networking reception.
In the wake of the post-2007 financial crisis, the financing of infrastructure, oil and gas, and other long term projects in both developed and emerging economies has faced an urgent need to adapt and respond to changed rules and circumstances in the global marketplace. Global banking regulation reform, the rise of alternative financing techniques in emerging economies, increased political instability in particular host-states, and the rise of international legal disputes throughout the life of a project are some of the many issues that have become critical to the success of projects for both investors and host-states around the world.
The NYU Journal of Law & Business seeks to provide a forum for in-depth discussion of these and other issues between legal and financial scholars and practitioners of the highest quality. The Symposium will consist of three panels, each devoted to conversation and dialogue over select themes and issues, led by a panel moderator. The Journal will publish the proceedings of the Symposium in its Spring 2013 issue.
