Duke Law’s Global Financial Markets Center (“GFMC”) promotes and advances the interdisciplinary study, understanding, and development of financial institutions and markets, and their optimal regulation, both domestically and abroad. The focus of the Center’s research, education, and publication includes all issues of law, business, technology, and regulation that impact financial markets and financial institutions.
The GFMC 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. The Center’s past and upcoming events can be found here.
The GFMC sponsors the FinReg Blog, a forum committed to contributing to the public debate around law and finance. The Blog houses articles written by GFMC faculty and affiliated practitioners, who express their views on all things finance and regulation. Blog topics include Case Studies, Climate Change, Corporate Governance, COVID-19, Economics, FinTech, and Regulation.
The GFMC also has a Podcast, entitled “The FinReg Pod.” The Podcast hosts industry leaders, policy-makers, and academics who discuss some of the most interesting topics at the intersection of finance, law, and public policy.
Additionally, the GFMC is a proud co-sponsor of American Predatory Lending, a ground breaking interdisciplinary project that examines the state level response to the causes of the Global Financial Crisis.
