U.S. Sec Reg / Global Context

U.S. Securities Regulation in a Global Context

"U.S. Securities Regulation in a Global Context" 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") (other than Rule 10b-5 litigation and class actions in the U.S., which is the subject of a separate Elective "Shareholder Class Actions" (Professor Pritchard), and insider trading). The course will examine securities offerings (including secondary sales) and the registration process under the Securities Act, liability for false or misleading disclosure under the Securities Act, and reporting requirements under the Exchange Act, and under the Securities and Exchange Acts as altered by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 ("PSLRA"), the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 ("SOX"), the 2005 offering reforms, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 ("Dodd-Frank") and the Jumpstart Our Business Startups ("JOBS") Act of 2012. The course will present the U.S. securities regulatory system in explicit comparison with like systems in other, non-U.S., jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, the European Union, and East Asia (focusing on China, Japan and India).
