The Law and Insider Trading
Three Washington College alumni who have made successful careers in the field of law will return to campus for a panel discussion on insider trading. K. Edward Raleigh ’08, Geoffrey R. Garinther ’81, and Stacey McEvoy ’05 will discuss the legality of insider trading and the enforcement and penalization of improper conduct.
The April 7 event in Hynson Lounge begins at 5 p.m. Students interested in business, banking, finance, political science, and law are strongly encouraged to attend, and the event is free and open to the public.
