Inaugural Fred Dunbar Memorial Lecture in Law and Economics
NERA Economic Consulting has established the Fred Dunbar Memorial Lecture in Law and Economics at Fordham Law School in memory of Fred Dunbar, Ph.D., a longtime firm member, and leading securities and finance expert. Dr. Dunbar died in February 2012.
The inaugural Fred Dunbar Memorial Lecture in Law and Economics will be held in spring 2013.
Dr. Dunbar joined NERA in 1979 and founded the firm's Securities and Finance and Mass Torts and Product Liability Practices. He was widely regarded as a distinguished economist “who worked at the intersection of law and economics.” Throughout his career at NERA he was a sought-after expert witness whose testimony and use of econometrics—a form of mathematical and statistical analysis—significantly influenced claims estimation and litigation in court cases and arbitrations worldwide.
