Financial Regulation Reform Seminar
J.D. Seminar 1088 | 1 credit hours
This seminar explores a wide range of issues in the ongoing reform of financial services regulation in the United States. Discussions will focus on certain key aspects of the emerging post-crisis regulatory regime after the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010: the new architecture of systemic risk regulation, restrictions on banking organizations’ trading and investing activities, regulation of derivatives, the orderly resolution mechanism for systemically significant financial institutions, and an integrated system of consumer financial protection. As part of the discussion, students will examine alternative proposals and approaches to prevention of systemic crises in the financial sector.
Strongly recommended: Prior or concurrent enrollment in Securities Regulation, Banking Law, Consumer Finance, International Finance.
This course will meet the first half of the semester on the following Wednesdays: 9/5, 9/12, 9/19, 9/26, 10/3, 10/10, and 10/17.
