    Business Law Institute Symposium to examine secondary mortgage market reform

    The troubled secondary mortgage market remains a hot topic before Congress, and the Obama Administration has already proposed three pathways to reform.  To help sort through the issues and facilitate the discussion, Hamline’s Business Law Institute and the Hamline Law Review are bringing together national and local experts from business, banks large and small, law schools, trade associations, consumer organizations and federal agencies to debate this controversial topic in an Oct. 3 symposium, “Reforming the Secondary Mortgage Market.”

    The symposium will feature a luncheon keynote address from former Minneapolis Reserve Bank President, Gary Stern, who will address the topic of Fannie, Freddie, and Too Big to Fail. 

    Dr. Stern is a noted economist and the author of many respected articles and books, including Too Big to Fail — The Hazards of Bank Bailouts (with foreword from Paul A. Volcker).

    The symposium will also feature four panels throughout the day with experts representing the full spectrum of perspectives, including:
