Securities Litigation Law: Law, Policy, and Practice
Securities Litigation provides an analytical and practical framework addressing the key subjects in the field. In this text, U.S. Supreme Court and lower court cases that cover the key remedial provisions are highlighted, including Sections 11 and 12 of the Securities Act and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act, as well as alternative federal remedial statutes (such as Sections 14(a) and 18(a) of the 1934 Act) and secondary liability provisions. Integral to this discussion is a thorough treatment of class and derivative actions, with applicable cases and statutes. Government enforcement is also analyzed, with particular focus being given to the SEC and criminal enforcement. In addition, state securities litigation is covered in depth along with professional liability exposure. The text provides a practical and insightful learning experience, complemented by problems and exercises that will enhance students' lawyering skills.
