Internationalism in financial markets is the topic of a lecture at the University of Regina by Cally Jordan, the Estey Visiting Chair in Business Law at the University of Saskatchewan.

The lecture will be held on Thursday, March 3, 2016, at 2:30 p.m. in Room 215 of the Language Institute at the U of R and is open to the public.

This lecture is part of the McKercher LLP Lecture Series at the University Saskatchewan College of Law and is co-sponsored by the University of Regina President's Office, Faculty of Arts, and the Hill and Levene Schools of Business. It has been approved for one Continuing Professional Development credit hour by the Law Society of Saskatchewan.

“This is the second time the University of Regina has collaborated with the University of Saskatchewan College of Law for the McKercher LLP Lecture Series,” says U of R President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Vianne Timmons. “It's a great partnership because it allows faculty, staff, students and members of the public to engage with distinguished speakers on a variety of topics related to Canadian and international law.”

Repeated international financial crises have prompted the call for concerted international action, most significantly in the form of creation and implementation of international financial standards. But the results of using international financial standards have been mixed. So the question raised is: Do the waves of re-regulation and national regulatory retrenchment spell the end of internationalism in financial markets?

Cally Jordan holds an MA from the University of Toronto and has both civil and common law degrees from McGill University. She also has a DEA from the Université de Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne). During her career, she has advised governments and international financial institutions on corporate governance, capital markets and commercial law reforms. Currently she holds the Estey Visiting Chair in Business Law at the University of Saskatchewan. She has been a visitor at the Max Planck Institute (Hamburg) and the London School of Economics and Political Science, and is also a Research Fellow at the C.D.Howe Institute in Toronto.
