This seminar is intended for students who are interested in international finance and the structure of financial regulation in an increasingly globalized economy. The seminar will explore issues of current interest in the field, including the competitiveness of U.S. financial markets, regulatory reform of financial regulation in the United States and around the world, the structure of regulatory cooperation in global markets, and the role of public and private enforcement in financial markets. The initial sessions will provide background on these subjects. Later, the focus of the seminar will be a series of outside speakers from government, practice and industry. In the final sessions of the year, students will present their own research papers on topics of current interest. Seehttp://www.law.harvard.edu/programs/pifs/ifllm.html for examples of papers written by students in prior years as well as a list of outside speakers.
