Comparative Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation – 6927

Comparative corporate governance and financial regulation explores the public and private character of regulatory governance, exploring how regulatory instruments and functions differ across distinct jurisdictions, exploring in particular, divergences and convergences across Ireland, Europe and America. Co-located at the law schools in UCD and at the University of Minnesota, this module draws on faculty at both institutions, representatives from regulatory agencies, and practitioners, to provide a thematic analysis of the contemporary regulatory challenges in the fields of financial regulation and corporate governance. The main assignment is a 5000 word paper, and an in-class presentation of that paper.  This class satisfies the upper-class writing requirement.
