On March 19, as part of the Torys LLP Business and Law Pre-Eminent Scholars Series, which invites leading academics and scholars to speak at the University of Western Ontario Faculty of Law, Nobel Prizewinning economist Myron Scholes spoke about some of the causes of the current economic crisis. Myron won the Nobel Prize in 1997 for his work on the Black-Scholes Options Pricing Theory.

Torys has sponsored the series since 2007. "The Scholars Series encourages diversity of academic perspectives and an international approach to the study of business law," says series organizer and Torys alumnus Professor Christopher Nicholls, Director of Western's business law program. "It embodies our commitment to remain at the forefront of business law education in Canada, and to continue to provide an important leadership role in the business law area for other law schools to follow."
