Securities Law from the Inside: Hot Topics for In-House Public Company Securities Lawyers
Professor R. Hansen
LL.M Course 2035 (cross-listed) | 2 credit hours
This course will be a mix of lecture, discussion, and problem solving exercises/ role-playing. We will focus on: • current issues in the regulation and reporting/ communication obligations of public companies; • disclosure requirements as an extension of public policy; • stockholder activism and the relationship between public companies and their stockholders; • the role of a board of directors; • recent legislative and regulatory developments of interest to in-house securities practitioners; and • ethical considerations for in-house securities practitioners. My goal is to introduce you to a broad array of topics, and I will emphasize breadth of material over depth of material.
