William Shirley of Sidley Austin LLP and Dana Neacsu discuss research aspects regarding the interplay between bankruptcy and derivatives rules. From September 12 through October 31, 2019, on Thursdays at noon, we will cover eight different topics.  For the third week, the topics include researching the various iterations of the definition of “qualified financial contract” (QFC) in the Bankruptcy Code and Title II of Dodd-Frank. Make sure you bring your laptop because the workshop will provide hands-on experiential training in order to hone your skills in various methods for researching the interplay between various federal statutes. Some non-pizza food will be provided courtesy of the Arthur W. Diamond Law Library. The workshop is sponsored by Columbia Law School’s Writing Center.
