[The] Regulation of Financial Institutions and Activities after the Financial Crisis (20299). 3 units. The Dodd-Frank Act, signed by President Obama on July 21, 2010, undoubtedly represents the most significant change to regulation of the U.S. financial system since the aftermath of the Great Depression. Sown from the seeds of the global financial crisis, Dodd-Frank dramatically changes the rules of the game for financial institutions and other market participants. Understanding the fundamental changes currently underway in the financial system is critical for those who will work at financial institutions or serve as their counsel.
This course, meant for both law school students and business school students, will explore the origins of Dodd-Frank in the financial crisis, the legislative process that formed Dodd-Frank, the overhaul of the financial regulatory system embedded in Dodd-Frank’s 848 pages and the work regulators have been doing to implement these changes. In addition to exploring the legal and regulatory underpinnings, it will also focus on the market response to these changes and describe how doing business in certain financial instruments today differs significantly from before the financial crisis.
There are no prerequisites for this course. For the final class, students will be divided into groups and asked to present on their views of a regulation proposed, but not yet finalized, by regulators. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. Also MGT 642a. G.D. Rosenberg.
Note: This course will follow the School of Management calendar.
