New York -- The Center for the Study of Mergers and Acquisitions at Penn State's Dickinson School of Law and the New York City Bar are co-sponsoring the Fourth Annual Institute on Corporate, Securities, and Related Aspects of Mergers and Acquisitions on Oct. 15 and 16 at the Bar's facility in New York City.

The Institute is co-chaired by Penn State Dickinson Professor Samuel C. Thompson Jr. and H. Rodgin Cohen of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP. Presenters include some of the world's leading M&A attorneys, investment bankers and governmental officials who will offer analyses of recent developments in mergers and acquisitions law. The program is approved for CLE credit in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, California and Illinois.

Thompson, one of the nation's most prominent and highly regarded scholars of tax and mergers and acquisitions law, joined the faculty of Penn State Dickinson this fall and will serve as the Arthur Weiss Distinguished Faculty Scholar. Formerly with UCLA School of Law, Thompson has transferred his renowned Center for the Study of Mergers and Acquisitions to Penn State Dickinson. The center examines corporate, securities, tax, antitrust and other legal and economic issues that arise in mergers and acquisitions and hosts continuing legal education programs addressing these issues.
