Securities Regulation

Description: A survey of the federal law governing the issuance and trading of stock and other securities instruments. The first half of the course will emphasize the 1933 Securities Act and will examine the rules that small and large business entities must follow in raising capital through the sale of securities. The second half of the course will concentrate upon the 1934 Securities and Exchange Act and will include topics such as insider trading and securities fraud. Business Associations I would be helpful but is not a required prerequisite.
