For graduate students, the course number is LAW7000HS.

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.
