Professor Katherine Litvak to present at Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum

A scholarly paper by Professor Katherine Litvak of the University of Texas School of Law was selected for presentation at the tenth annual session of the prestigious Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum.

Litvak’s paper is entitled, “The Relationship Among U.S. Securities Laws, Cross-Listing Premia, and Trading Volumes.”
The Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum is dedicated to highlighting and promoting outstanding scholarly work and encouraging the exchange of ideas among the finest junior scholars in the nation. Papers written by a select group of these scholars, who are still in the first seven years of their progress toward university tenure, are presented to a distinguished panel of faculty members, peers, and invited guests, with two senior scholars discussing the papers. The scholars selected for presentation benefit not only from the recognition of having their papers read but also from interaction with their peers and senior scholars.

Litvak was also selected to participate in the 2007 session, at which time she presented “The Impact of Litigation on Venture Capitalist Performance, Reputation, and Fundraising,” a paper co-authored with Vladimir Atlanasov and Vladamir Ivanov, that explores the potential for abuse of startup founders and other common stock shareholders by venture capitalists.
