The Institute for Corporate Responsibility and the Center for Law, Economics and Finance are jointly sponsoring a program focusing on directors’ role in risk management, with particular emphasis on financial institutions, in the wake of the Dodd-Frank Act, which directs the Federal Reserve Board to require certain large, publicly traded, financial companies to establish a Board Risk Committee.
The program, part of an ongoing series on “Challenges in Corporate Governance,” will begin with remarks by GWSB Dean Doug Guthrie and GW Law School Dean Paul Schiff Berman and will include two consecutive panels. The first, focusing on the view from outside the boardroom, will feature a regulator, an attorney an industry analyst and a researcher. The second, taking an inside-the-boardroom perspective, will include two board directors, an auditor and a chief risk officer.
