This course will examine regulation of the financial sector, with a particular focus on the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, which enacted sweeping reforms to financial regulation. Topics include regulation and supervision of banks, systemically important financial institutions and markets, resolution of failing firms, derivatives regulation, the shadow banking system, consumer and investor protection, and other matters. The class will also explore cross-sectoral issues in risk regulation across the banking, securities and insurance industries. Students will also be exposed to real-world issues in legislative drafting, the legislative process, bureaucratic "turf" battles, and rule-making and implementation. Students will be expected to be active participants in class and to write a final "take home" examination.
