Overview

Both students and instructors will welcome Securites Regulation: Cases and Materials, Fifth Edition, the problem-oriented casebook that offers comprehensive coverage in an extremely flexible structure.

The casebook earned its position as the top seller in the field through:

  • the skills of its nationally known authors, who balance practice and doctrine in a challenging yet highly teachable book
  • providing maximum flexibility for instructors, with modular chapters and an easily adaptable organization
  • well-written, interesting problems that expose students to theory and the practical issues that impact investors and allow instructors to choose the problems they prefer, leaving control of the content in the instructor's hands
  • readable, straightforward writing
  • excellent coverage of the 1934 and 1935 Acts, widely recognized as the best in the field

Thoroughly revised for its Fifth Edition, the casebook now:

  • covers the new Offering Rules, the sweeping reforms for the public offering of securities adopted by the SEC in June 2005, which are fully integrated into the text and problems. The intricate and complex rules are presented clearly and concisely, and are accompanied by an extensive set of problems that walk students through their operation and interaction with one another.
  • includes the recent Dura Pharmaceuticals decision
  • examines the recent developments regarding forward looking statements and the significant Supreme Court decision, Asher v. Baxter Int'l., Inc. to illustrate the operation of the statutory safe harbor
  • updated Teacher's Manual
