Course Description

This course will provide an introduction to securities regulatory concepts, law and policy relevant to business law students. The course will focus on the core areas of financing, public issuer obligations, materiality case law, mergers and acquisitions, and the evolving public interest jurisdiction of the securities commissions. The purpose of the course is to provide students with an understanding of core concepts from the perspectives of both policy and practical application. The goal of the course is to provide an understanding of the underlying principles of securities regulation and current debates on the appropriate role of securities regulation. Although there is an expectation that students will learn the key legal principles of securities regulation, the materials will be presented so as to allow non-lawyers and lawyers from different backgrounds to be fully engaged in understanding these key principles and the policy context within which they arise.
