Who Knows Where Your LL.M. Will Lead You?

When LL.M. Alumnus, Amy Lowenthal took her position as majority counsel on the Senate Agriculture Committee, little did she know that she would be researching Wall Street finances. However, recent problems with credit default swaps came to the attention of the Committee because of its jurisdiction over the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Amy has been researching this difficult issue for Senator Harkin, and here she is, seated behind him during the hearings that are referenced in the 60 Minutes segment "The Bet that Blew Up Wallstreet" aired on Sunday, October 26, 2008. It is a fascinating segment as well as great fun to see Amy on national television!
