Fall 2020 Reading Group

The United States and Global Capital Markets Regulation: A Retrospective Of the Past Twenty Years

Prerequisites: None

Exam Type: No Exam

This reading group will explore developments in international capital markets over the past two decades. We will read a collection of law review articles and policy papers written over the period, addressing regulation of capital raising and trading markets in global markets as well as challenges related to cross-border enforcement practices. At least one session will focus on current developments in European capital markets and another will address current conflicts between the SEC and PRC authorities related to auditing practices.

In order to accommodate participants from as many time zones as possible, the reading group will meet from 7:30 to 9:00 am on selected Thursday mornings during the Fall semester. Readings will be posted to Canvas and students will be asked to post reaction papers to Canvas discussion groups 24 hours before each session. Interested students will have the opportunity to work with Professor Jackson later in the year on independent papers or research assignments related to the subject matter of the reading group.

Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: 9/10, 9/17, 9/24, 10/8, 10/22, 11/5, 11/19, and 12/3.
