Course Description:

The course will examine the federal statutes and regulations relating to securities transactions and the duties of issuers, underwriters, officers, directors, controlling persons, and other significant market participants. We will discuss the regulation of public and private offerings, secondary trading markets, and disclosure by publicly traded companies. We also will learn about the main liability provisions, including Rule 10b-5 and claims for insider trading.

The course will help prepare students to work on public and private securities transactions or to be an effective member of a litigation team representing a party in securities litigation. Both of these are substantial practice areas in law firms. The course also will provide a better understanding of the goals of business enterprises and the financial and regulatory constraints that affect business decisions.
