Europeanization of Capital Market Law - What is it?
Professor Stefan Grundmann is one of the leading researchers in European private law. He has been a professor at the European University of Florence and is now back at the Humboldt University in Berlin.
The European Capital Market Union is one of the most ambitious projects - perhaps even the one most ambitious - of this EU Commission. While this project, to a good extent carried through, is indeed of prime importance, it consists mainly of many single pieces and certainly also calls for more asking the question what variety of developments have been inherent in Europeanization of Capital Market Law over three decades. I will discuss this question on the background of the German development, namely what it meant for transposition into a legal regime that does not belong to the most strongly capital market oriented ones in Europe.
After the lecture there will be an informal seminar discussion with comments by Professor Kåre Lilleholt and Dr. Marte Kjørven.
The lecture and the informal seminar discussion will be chaired by Professor Mads Andenas.
