Professor Haeberle Article Selected for Presentation at FedSoc’s Junior Scholars Colloquium

Kevin S. Haeberle, Associate Professor of Law and Fellow at the Center for the Study of Law and Markets at William & Mary Law School, will present a paper at the Federalist Society’s Eighth Annual Junior Scholars Colloquium this Saturday, June 27.

Professor Haeberle’s paper is titled, Marginal Benefits of the Core Securities Laws.Kevin S. Haeberle

The 2020 Junior Scholars Colloquium provides eight junior faculty members with the opportunity to present competitively selected, unpublished papers. For each selected paper, a senior scholar provides in-depth comments on the draft following the author’s presentation, and then leads a follow-up discussion among the larger group of attendees.

The colloquium takes place over two days each summer. The colloquium, p​resented by ​t​he ​Federalist Society ​Faculty ​Division and ​t​he S​earle ​Freedom ​Trust, was originally to be held in Annapolis, Maryland, but has been moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Professor Haeberle’s selected article follows up on his most recently published article, Information Asymmetry and the Protection of Ordinary Investors, 53 UC Davis L. Rev. 145 (2019). In that paper, he theorized that the reductions to information asymmetry provided by the core securities laws imposed a long-overlooked cost on buy-and-hold investors. That article was selected for presentation at the Yale/Harvard/Stanford Junior Faculty Forum. It was also selected for republication in the Securities Law Review as one of the top eight to 10 law review articles on securities law published in 2019.

Marginal Benefits of the Core Securities Laws, which Professor Haeberle presents this week at the FSOC colloquium, examines an array of broader effects of these same laws.
