12:00 pm

"A Conversation with Robert Kielty"

Room: MAIN 237
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

LOOKBACK: How The Savings & Loan Industry Crisis of the 1980’s and 90’s Informs Current Times

Attorney Robert Kielty, who now resides in Arizona, will discuss the social and political environment for oversight of financial institutions, drawing on his extensive experience. He will talk about the highly publicized national events in the savings and loan industry in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, which led to the eventual indictment of, and plea agreements for more than 3,000 directors, executives and S & L officers across the country. In addition, the battle between financial institutions and regulators involved five United States Senators, weeks of televised Congressional hearings, and the then-largest FBI white collar investigation in the country, and exponential news coverage.

James E. Rogers College of Law
Faculty Lounge, room 237
12:00 – 1:15 pm

This will be an interesting and non-technical discussion and there will be time for Q & A. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to nstanley@email.arizona.edu.

After a long and productive law career in Arizona, Mr. Kielty rose to General Counsel, Executive Vice-President and Vice Chairman of the Board of ACC, one of the largest homebuilders in the U.S. and the largest in Arizona. In the mid-1980’s ACC acquired the failing Lincoln Savings and Loan and within two years grew it to one of the country’s most profitable S & Ls, attracting the attention of regulators. He is able to speak authentically and from his own point of view about one of the biggest contemporary stories in the financial world having been at the center of the storm as it unfolded.

All students and faculty from across the UA campus are welcome to attend.

Short Story Reading Club

Room: MAIN 137
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

OPEN TO ALL LAW SCHOOL STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND STAFF

The law school community is invited to participate in discussions of short stories over the lunch hour, hosted by Associate Professor of Legal Writing Sylvia Lett. Each meeting will discuss a different short story (copies of the stories and reading guides are free and available outside of Room 254).

The Short Story Reading Club was inspired by international students who wanted to read some good books in English. The Short Story Reading Club is designed as a fun, low-stress way to integrate some non-law reading into our busy lives. Studies have shown that reading for fun improves a person's writing!

Please ready the short story, then come by to enjoy a light lunch while talking or listening to a discussion of the story.
