Structuring and Regulating Financial Transactions
The course will develop and analyze structured finance transactions from a multidisciplinary standpoint. It will also consider the ethics and efficiencies of "deconstructing" a company in this manner, including the potential to generate unanticipated consequences as may have occurred in the subprime financial crisis. The class will be challenged to identify problems and find real-life, creative solutions.
There is no formal prerequisite; however, Business Associations or a commercial law or bankruptcy course is recommended. The relevant legal principles will be learned and applied along the way - in the same manner that a good practitioner learns. A student without background in commercial law and finance should still be able to master the course. Examination or (with permission) paper.
Please note that course organization and content may vary substantially from semester to semester and descriptions are not necessarily professor specific. Please contact the instructor directly if you have particular course-related questions.
