The national reputation of the authors, their balance of practice and doctrine, and a highly teachable structure have all made Securities Regulation: Cases and Materials the best-selling text in the field. Applauded for excellent coverage of the 1934 and 1935 Acts, the text remains sophisticated yet not intimidating. Modular chapters adapt to a variety of teaching styles, giving the instructor flexibility in course design. Well-written, interesting problems expose students to theory as well as the practical issues that impact investors. Problems are short for ease of use in the classroom and allow instructors to pick and choose to suit their own classes. The authors publish both an annual statutory and a case supplement. The Seventh Edition pays close attention to the recently-enacted JOBS Act including the SEC's implementation rules. The new edition explores multiple impacts of the Dodd-Frank Act on the scope and content of securities regulations. An expanded description of various financial products pays particular heed to asset-backed securities and derivatives. The new meaning of "primary liability" under Rule 10b-5 after Janus Capital is introduced as are the ongoing developments in the nature and structure of securities markets (dark pools and the aftermath of the "flash crash.") Proxy regulation changes are discussed, asking the question, "Where does shareholder ballot access stand?" New note material appears on the D.C. Circuit's approach to interpreting "efficiency, competition and aggregation of capital" when considering challenges to SEC rule making. Post-Morrison developments in the extraterritorial application of law are included as well as the new strategies pursued in SEC enforcement.
