The Global Financial Markets Center seeks to advance the interdisciplinary study, understanding, and development of financial institutions and markets, and their optimal regulation, both domestically and abroad. The Center engages in research, education, and publication that broadens inquiry, dialogue, and debate beyond traditional academic boundaries, bridging the gap between theory and practice. The focus of this research, education, and publication may include any issues of law, business, technology, and regulation that impact financial markets and financial institutions. To achieve our goals, the Center hosts guest speakers from academia and industry, sponsors relevant research, prepares students for careers in business and law, and conducts collaborative programs with scholars, industry leaders, regulatory authorities, and other policymakers. In addition, the Center strives to contribute to the public debate around law and finance through its The FinReg Blog.
