This seminar focuses on core derivative instruments - swaps, futures, options and other derivative financial instruments - that are regulated by the Commodity Exchange Act and related regulations. It examines the key terms and characteristics of swaps, futures, options and other derivatives, including how they are typically structured and used. The seminar also reviews the regulatory framework that governs these financial agreements, including the regulation of key market participants and key market structures. The seminar also will examine emerging legal issues involving derivatives, including coordination with international regulators and cross-border jurisdiction issues, the limits imposed by traditional confidentiality restrictions in an environment that is demanding greater information sharing for regulatory and other purposes, as well as enforcement issues, including fraud and market manipulation. The seminar will enable students to research specific issues related to the regulation of derivatives.
