IFRS Appoints Goldschmid as Trustee

Fall 2010

After a worldwide public search, the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation recently appointed former SEC Commissioner Harvey J. Goldschmid to serve as one of the organization’s trustees. Goldschmid, the Law School’s Dwight Professor of Law, co-chaired an international group that worked with the International Accounting Standards Board and the Financial Accounting Standards Board to determine whether flawed accounting standards contributed to the financial crisis. Goldschmid is currently one of five U.S. trustees.
