This casebook offers a clear and concise introduction to the economics and regulation of securities markets, with a single-minded focus on disclosure and the economics of disclosure. It is concise, easy to read, and student friendly. The chapters are organized around motivating hypotheticals which illustrate the various issues relating to each chapter's topic. These hypotheticals make it easier for the students to follow the material. In addition, they are a useful teaching device allowing students to grapple with issues that they are likely to face as corporate lawyers. The supporting materials for the book also provide role-playing and prospectus-drafting exercises to involve students in learning tedious securities materials (i.e., prospectuses). This casebook attempts to make securities regulation easy to teach and understand. It is shorter and more comprehensible than other casebooks. It is focused on the important principles students will need to understand to be effective corporate lawyers. The book avoids policy debates and instead focuses on understanding the rules as they are. It contains tables and charts to organize complicated material, along with a comprehensive set of PowerPoint slides for presenting the material. This casebook focuses on the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 first, then the 1933 Act. The Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd Frank Acts are also covered. The Fourth Edition has been updated to reflect changes made by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act), including public company status and private placements. The Fourth Edition also includes significant recent Rule 10b-5 cases, such as Halliburton II, and insider trading cases (Newman).

This user-friendly casebook covers the changing landscape of securities regulations, dealing concisely but comprehensively with the current state of the law, as well as with expected modifications to securities regulation. The philosophy for the presentation of materials is that securities law is tricky, and most students need a straightforward guide through the maze. Coverage of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is kept separate, and care is taken to distinguish the different perspectives of the planner and the litigator. The Ninth Edition has been completely revised to reflect the adoption or revision of a number of exemptions from '33 Act registration, the advent of digital currency, the prosecution of hackers for insider trading, the materiality of corporate ethics code violations, and a myriad of other topics, all explained as an integrated part of the overall structure of securities regulation rather than as confusing add-ons. The Ninth Edition also adds or discusses the important securities decisions issued since the last edition. These include Omnicare, Inc. v. Laborers District Council Construction Industry Pension Fund, Salman v. United States, and Kokesh v. SEC.
