611.31 Readings: Contemporary Corporate and Securities Law Issues

Each of the eight sessions will meet for 45 minutes to discuss a circulated set of materials focused on an emerging legal issue in the field of corporate or securities law. There is no prerequisite that you have been previously enrolled in either of those classes in law school.  Readings for each class will be approximately 10-15 pages. The award of credit will be based on equal weighting of class participation and a memo addressed to a policy maker briefing him/her on the reasons for the position you recommend the policy maker take in the new regulatory administration regarding the issue raised in the circulated readings.
