Chicago-Kent College of Law is proud to present "Building a Compliance Culture in Today’s Financial Institutions," a discussion by leading authorities in the field of financial institution regulation and compliance. 

The field of financial institution compliance is entering a new era of uncertainty. What are the implications of the potential changes in the regulatory structure governing the financial markets for a firm’s compliance culture? How can banks and other intermediaries meet the new regulatory expectations? Come learn about recent trends and the upcoming challenges facing compliance professionals in this new environment. The plenary speaker will be Judge Jed Rakoff (S.D.N.Y.), a nationally renowned jurist, and the panel will be comprised of leading experts who come to the compliance field from a wide variety of perspectives, including the government, the finance industry, and the academy.
