Exam Type: Last Class Take-Home
This course explores the regulation of financial institutions and financial markets. Principal emphasis will be on the prudential regulation of banking organizations and their affiliates, with attention both to the economic and political rationales for regulation and to core statutory and regulatory doctrines. There will be briefer treatment of securities firms, asset managers and insurance companies. The course will also cover consumer protection and the oversight of systemic risk. While the primary focus of the course will be on financial regulation in the United States, there will be some attention to international aspects of financial regulation.
The casebook will be Barr, Jackson & Tahyar, Financial Regulation: Law and Policy (Foundation Press 2nd ed. 2018). Some additional materials will be posted to the course's Canvas website.
