On Monday, August 4, 2014 Washington and Lee Law professor Victoria Shannon presented two papers at the annual meeting of the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS).

As Washington and Lee’s delegate to the SEALS New Scholars Program, Prof. Shannon presented a draft of her forthcoming article proposing revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to address the participation of third-party litigation funders.

As a participant in the discussion group entitled “Corporate Compliance After the Crisis,” she presented a short discussion paper in which she explored whether third-party funding transactions are derivatives and whether third-party funders should therefore be regulated under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
