Penn State Law on Wall Street

Since the onset of the global financial crisis, securitizations in the private mortgage sector have practically come to a halt. Identified as a contributing factor in the meltdown, securitization has been targeted for extensive reform.

"For more than four decades the UCC Institute has been addressing the most compelling issues of the day facing business and legal professionals," said Penn State Law Professor Louis Del Duca. "This year’s event brings together leading legal, economic, and investment experts to provide an in-depth look at securitization changes and the impact that it is having."
On Wednesday, May 5, Morrison & Foerster is hosting the 43rd Annual Uniform Commercial Code Institute with Penn State Law. Moderated by Del Duca, this year’s institute titled “The Securitization Market and Proposed Reforms: A Look into the Future of Housing Finance” will give participants an overview of the current state of the market and a review of securitization reforms, perspectives on mortgage modification efforts, and alternative mortgage financing approaches.  

The event, which is free of charge, is intended for investment professionals, tax advisors, and both new and experienced attorneys. The program will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Morrison & Foerster’s New York office, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY.  A Uniform Certificate of Attendance will be provided for Continuing Legal Education credit.
