Financial Regulation

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.
