In financial markets law and finance are intrinsically connected. Law underpins markets. Finance applies the tools provided by the law but also continuously tests the boundaries set by law.  

When markets collapse, however, legal rules are pushed into the background and other forces take over determining the way in which actors respond to systemic events.

This event is co-hosted with the Law and Financial Markets Project (LFMP) at the Law Department, LSE. It is delivered as part of the workshop: Research Frontiers in Law, Finance and Governance.
