Learning Outcome Goals

Primary Goals

  • A principal goal is a transactional understanding of the offering process. How do they price and market IPOs? What do underwriters actually do? What is involved in the preparation of a registration statement?
  • Another major goal is an understanding of the problem of systemic risk. How does the Dodd-Frank Act deal with it? How effective is it likely to be?
  • Have recent deregulatory efforts gone too far? Or is there room for further deregulation? This debate will be informed by pending SEC rule-making under the JOBS Act and recent court decisions.
