I will be teaching Securities Markets Law at UTS again in 2016.
The subject builds on the compulsory company law subject by examining key issues in the Australian scheme for the regulation of markets for corporate securities. Topics include an introduction to corporate finance, regulation of major equity and debt capital transactions such as reductions, buy-backs and the raising of new capital through equity and debt issues. The subject has a particular focus on the role of disclosure in securities market regulation, including the regulation of continuous disclosure, misleading statements to the market and insider trading. The subject also provides an introduction to takeover regulation with an emphasis on the role of disclosure in takeovers and the regulation of takeover disputes.
