Washington Law Review Symposium on Disclosure Crisis

The symposium is scheduled for Feb. 28, 2013, 9:30 AM – 6:30 PM, at the UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON SCHOOL OF LAW (registration by Feb. 26).  The announcement states:

Mandatory disclosure is a popular form of regulation. From privacy to healthcare, politics to “payola,” laws requiring disclosure have proliferated in recent decades. This symposium features panel discussions by top scholars and practitioners on why we love—or love to hate—disclosure, why it seems to never work, and what solutions exist.
