Adventures of Robinhood: The GameStop Escapade

Join four of the Law School’s resident experts in corporate, securities, tax, and white-collar criminal law for an open, one-hour discussion of the recent Robinhood/GameStop stock-trading controversy.

  • Now that the dust has somewhat settled, and after congressional hearings into the matter (scheduled for February 18), what have we learned? 
  • What happened, who did what, and have laws been broken? 
  • What consequences might investors, market participants, and regulators be overlooking?
  • Should action be taken to prevent a recurrence of such things, and if so, what form should it take?


These and other questions -- including questions from the audience -- will be addressed.


DateMonday, February 22, 2021

Time: 6-7 p.m. ET

Location: Held Via Zoom

This event is free, open to the public, and will be held via Zoom.
