Comparative Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation – 6927

Spring 2022

This course explores the public and private character of regulatory governance--how regulatory instruments and functions differ across distinct jurisdictions--and, 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.
