Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets
Advancing Informed Capital Markets Regulation
Jointly based at Columbia Law School and Columbia Business School, the Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets aims to advance informed capital markets regulation as well as the efficient operation of the markets themselves.
The Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets is currently focused on three primary projects:
- Further developing the joint Columbia Law School and Columbia Business School Capital Markets Regulation course as well as the materials necessary for other universities to provide the course;
- Drafting what we hope will be the seminal treatise on the subject; and
- Bringing together experts from the legal and business academy, government, industry, and legal practice at our Fellow Workshops for high-level discussions of current issues relating to the legal regulation of capital markets and the economic forces that drive both the markets themselves as well as their regulation.
