U.S. Securities Regulation in a Global Context

"U.S. Securities Regulation" is an introductory U.S. securities regulation course focusing on the Securities Act of 1933 ("Securities Act") and to a lesser extent the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("Exchange Act"). This course offers an intensive introduction to the federal securities laws. The course explores the elaborate disclosure obligations that this country imposes on the distribution and trading of investment securities. Topics to be covered include the preparation of disclosure documents, exemptions from disclosure requirements, the relationship between disclosure obligations and antifraud rules, and the duties of participants in securities transactions. In the past, most students have taken this course in preparation for corporate practice, but the subject has also been of interest to those concerned with the development of the modern regulatory state, as exemplified by the evolution of federal securities laws under the Securities and Exchange Commission.
