On February 6, 2014, Professor Victoria Shannon presented a paper entitled A Systems-Based Approach to Regulating Third-Party Litigation Funding as the featured guest speaker at a George Washington University Law School International and Comparative Law Colloquium. Professor Shannon’s paper identifies the three systems that make up third-party litigation funding – the transactional, procedural, and ethical systems – and suggests cross-functional regulations within those systems as a way to regulate the industry holistically. Professor Shannon was selected to present an earlier draft of this paper at the Junior International Law Scholars Association (JILSA) Annual Meeting hosted by the University of California at Berkeley on January 31, 2014.
Professor Shannon also participated as a participant in the George Washington University Law School, Center for Law, Economics & Finance (C-LEAF) Fourth Annual Junior Faculty Business and Financial Law Workshop on February 7-8, 2014. The C-LEAF Junior Faculty Workshop supports and recognizes the work of young legal scholars in accounting, banking, bankruptcy, corporations, economics, finance, and securities, while promoting interaction among them and selected senior faculty.
