The Sutherland School of Law at UCD hosted a major conference on 6 February 2020 on the subject of ‘Regulating Bank Culture’. This conference brought together leading academics, regulators and industry leaders to consider contemporary issues in banking culture, including recent developments, international differences, and new directions for generative change. In particular, the conference explored key issues related to the following themes: senior executive accountability; diversity and inclusion; board dynamics; promoting trust; and constructive dissent. The Conference was organised by Dr Joe McGrath of UCD Sutherland School of Law, in cooperation with Professor Claire Hill of the University of Minnesota, and generously sponsored by Eversheds Sutherland.
