Skilling v. United States (2010)

Posted by on Thursday, September 16, 2010 in Roundtables.

The Skilling v. United States Roundtable, published in March 2010, features participation from several scholars. Professor Nancy J. King’s introductory essay lays the foundation for the debate. William H. Farmer, Abbe David Lowell, Christopher D. Man, Paul M. Thompson, Timothy P. O’Toole, and Professors Julie R. O’Sullivan and Ellen S. Podgor provided their “first takes” on the case. We hope you find this Roundtable informative and engaging.
