This course provides an introduction to Securities Regulation (i.e., the law that governs investments and investing). We will focus on the Securities Act of 1933, which governs the purchase and sale of securities, and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which, among other things, specifies the reporting and corporate governance obligations of public companies. This course will prepare students to provide legal counsel to companies looking to raise capital through private and public offerings of securities. It will also prepare students to advise public companies and their executives with respect to their securities-law compliance obligations, including what constitutes securities fraud and insider trading.
