Capital Markets and Financial Misconduct Seminar

S. Guan
2 online Thursday 2:40 pm-4:20 pm

Certificate(s): High Tech Law - Corporate Specialization Only

This seminar will focus on contemporary issues in the conceptualization and regulation of misconduct in financial markets. We will explore wrongdoing in U.S. secondary markets for the trading of stocks, bonds, and other financial instruments, markets whose proper functioning facilitates the original offerings of such instruments by businesses seeking new financing. The seminar will begin with an exploration of the social and economic functions served by trading markets, including providing liquidity for investors and incorporating information into prices, which in turn serve as vital guides for the economy. We will also consider how rules and policy shape the ability of these markets to perform such functions. We will then explore issues that arise specifically in the regulation of wrongdoing in these markets, including manipulation, spoofing, high frequency trading, and broker execution quality. We will also consider the impact of technological innovation on the prevalence of and regulation around such activities.   

 

This seminar will be divided into two parts.  The first will consist of assigned readings, occasional short response papers, and in-class discussion.  The second part will entail student-led presentations and discussions, based on topics collectively identified and assigned earlier in the course.

Land Use

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law (List C)

The Land Use Law Seminar provides a unique opportunity to study how local governments regulate the use of land through planning, zoning, subdivision regulation and other controls.  In other words, this seminar is about local environmental law. Legal regulation of both private and public uses of land in urban, suburban, exurban and rural areas is one focus of the seminar.  Other land use control strategies through nuisance law and private land use arrangements also play a role in local land use control systems.  Primarily looking at California law, the seminar also will explore constitutional issues such as takings and First Amendment freedoms of religion and of expression as they arise in local land use controversies.  Accommodation of potentially conflicting interests of landowners, neighbors, communities, and regional interests causes regulation of transportation and affordable housing especially challenging.  The first reading assignment will be posted on Camino.  The top five students on the wait list should attend the first day.  The course is graded, based on a seminar paper and participation in weekly seminar discussions.

Law and Social Justice Seminar

D. Moss-West
3 online Tuesday & Thursday 4:10 pm-5:25 pm

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law (List A)

Work toward social justice is part of the professional responsibility of all lawyers, and an aspiration for social justice animates many law students. This course provides an opportunity to consider the relationship between law and social justice in several different contexts, including the structure of the legal profession and the delivery of legal services; the efforts to achieve social justice and civil rights through litigation in work, subsistence, housing, and procedural due process; the problem of access to courts and the role of the judiciary; and the role of lawyers working with community movements.  
 
To ground these theoretical explorations in real-life practice, the course will feature presentations by practitioners and advocates who work to advance racial justice,  public interest and social justice.  Instead of a final exam or research paper, students will work in teams to produce written “case studies” of a Bay Area social justice lawyering topic of their choosing. At the end of the semester, we will hold a day-long mini-conference for students to present their work to faculty, students, and interested members of the Santa Clara local social justice community.

The students become familiar with basic technology concepts and ways new technologies are developed, commercialized and distributed, and the legal decisions along the way.
