Financial Markets and Corporate Law Clinic (30211). 3 units. The purpose of this clinic will be to introduce students to public policy debates in the regulatory context. We will endeavor to apply public choice theory and modern theories in corporate finance to debates about the content of regulation and public policy. In this clinic, students and faculty will work collaboratively to generate actual comment letters as well as publishable academic research regarding proposed regulation by such institutions as the SEC, the Fed, the FDA, the Comptroller of the Currency, and others. In formulating policy statements, students will be encouraged to be cognizant of the value of markets and the need to improve the quality of public decision-making in areas related to the regulation of corporate governance and capital markets. Open only to J.D. students. Paper required. Enrollment limited to twenty. Permission of the instructors required. J.R. Macey, G. Fleming, and B.L. Beirne.
