About Our Featured Speakers:
Carey R. Dunne '80 - Mr. Dunne is Chair of Davis Polk’s litigation practice and a member of the firm’s three-person Management Committee. He represents clients in a wide variety of criminal, civil and regulatory matters, including grand jury inquiries, internal investigations, enforcement actions by state and federal agencies, and complex commercial disputes. Most of the cases that he handles involve “parallel proceedings”: competing actions and investigations that must be defended simultaneously in multiple forums. His white collar criminal and regulatory matters have involved allegations of securities fraud, insider trading, foreign corrupt practices, money laundering and other financial crimes. He also has extensive experience advising companies, boards and audit committees on compliance and corporate governance issues.

He was a prosecutor in the office of Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau from 1984 through 1987. Mr. Dunne’s recent matters have included assignments in China, Korea, Pakistan, Indonesia, the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Italy and the United Kingdom.

Mr. Dunne is the president of the New York City Bar Association, which was founded in 1870 and is the largest such organization in the city, with 23,000 members.

Marvin Krislov - Marvin Krislov became the 14th president of Oberlin College in summer 2007. He came to Oberlin from the University of Michigan, where he had been vice president and general counsel since 1998. At Michigan, he was responsible for the university’s legal affairs; serving as senior legal counsel to the Board of Regents, the university administration, and units, including the health systems; and supervising the professional staff and outside counsel required to carry out these activities. Mr. Krislov led the University of Michigan’s legal defense of its admission policies, resulting in the 2003 Supreme Court decision recognizing the importance of student body diversity.

Mr. Krislov received a bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, from Yale University in 1982. A Rhodes Scholar, he studied at Oxford University’s Magdalen College, where he earned a master’s degree in modern history in 1985. He served as editor of the Yale Law Journal and earned a doctor of laws degree from Yale Law School in 1988. He then worked as a law clerk for Judge Marilyn Hall Patel of the U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

Prior to entering academic life, Mr. Krislov served as acting solicitor from 1997-98 in the U.S. Department of Labor, and as deputy solicitor of national operations from 1996 to 1998. In those capacities, he was primary legal advisor to the Secretary of Labor and supervised litigation, legal enforcement, regulation, and policy activities. Previously, he served as associate counsel in the Office of Counsel to the President.
