For graduate students, the course number is LAW7000HF.

Note: I will be using TWEN (The West Educational Network) rather than Blackboard. At the start of the course I will distribute a course password for enrollment on TWEN. General instructions for enrolling on TWEN can be found in the course syllabus (distributed with the supplementary materials for the course).

The primary aim of this course is to develop doctrinal fluency in the following areas:
(1) primary market disclosure obligations (including the basic prospectus obligation, different types of prospectuses, and prospectus exemptions);
(2) secondary market disclosure obligations;
(3) registration (i.e. licensing) of securities market professionals;
(4) takeover bids;
(5) insider trading; and
(6) the discretionary powers of securities regulators.

In addition to developing doctrinal fluency, the above-noted topics will be critiqued from a policy perspective. The main focus, however, will be on developing an understanding of the statute and case law.

Evaluation
will be by a final 3-hour open book examination.
