Mapping The Future Of Insider Trading Law: Of Boundaries, Gaps, And Strategies, John C. Coffee Jr. Dec 2012

Mapping The Future Of Insider Trading Law: Of Boundaries, Gaps, And Strategies, John C. Coffee Jr.

Faculty Scholarship

The current law on insider trading is arbitrary and unrationalized in its limited scope in a number of respects. For example, if a thief breaks into your office, opens your files, learns material, nonpublic information, and trades on that information, he has not breached a fiduciary duty and is presumably exempt from insider trading liability. But drawing a line that can convict only the fiduciary and not the thief seems morally incoherent. Nor is it doctrinally necessary. The basic methodology handed down by the Supreme Court in SEC v. Dirks and United States v. O’Hagan dictates (i) that a ...

The Legal Relationship Between The Bank And Its Safe Deposit Customer, Richard A. Lord Dec 2012

The Legal Relationship Between The Bank And Its Safe Deposit Customer, Richard A. Lord

Richard A. Lord

Today in the United States, virtually every commercial bank makes safe deposit services available for a small fee, either through a department of the bank or through a subsidiary or affiliated safe deposit company. Never before has the demand for safe deposit services been so great. More than ever before, Americans are turning to safe deposit companies and bank safe deposit vaults for the storage of their assets. This increased demand has caused increased concern among legislators and bankers about whether to regulate further the day-to-day affairs of the safe deposit business. Increased use of safe deposit vaults and boxes ...


The Omnibus Clause Of U.C.C. Section 4-303(1)(D): A Holder's Sword Or A Payor's Shield?, Charles C. Lewis Dec 2012

The Omnibus Clause Of U.C.C. Section 4-303(1)(D): A Holder's Sword Or A Payor's Shield?, Charles C. Lewis

Charles C. Lewis

In the years after the promulgation of the 1952 official text, particularly as the New York Law Revision Commission studied it, and as more and more states either studied the Code for enactment or actually enacted it during the late 1950's and early 1960's, law professors, practicing attorneys and bank attorneys commented on each provision of it. Section 4-303(1)(d) and its omnibus clause did not escape this scrutiny. Many of the commentators, however, did no more than describe the purpose of section 4-303's priority rules, point out that section 4-213(1)(c), a remarkably similar ...


Hedge Funds & Poison Pills: Can Typical Hedge Fund Activism Really Be Considered A Reasonable Threat Under Unocal?, Vincent V. Hilldrup Dec 2012

Hedge Funds & Poison Pills: Can Typical Hedge Fund Activism Really Be Considered A Reasonable Threat Under Unocal?, Vincent V. Hilldrup

Vincent V. Hilldrup

At a time when hedge fund returns have been stagnating and failing to meet expectations in the period from 2004-2007, they have also attracted significant amounts of capital as investors have eagerly sought to secure above market returns.1 Pressured to perform in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, hedge funds have turned to shareholder activism as a means of maximizing profits and increasing their returns on investment, seeking to influence corporate policy and, if necessary, hold underperforming managers accountable. With significant amounts of funds available at their disposal, they have the means to pressure management and directly influence ...

The Basel Iii Liquidity Coverage Ratio And Financial Stability, Andrew W. Hartlage Dec 2012

The Basel Iii Liquidity Coverage Ratio And Financial Stability, Andrew W. Hartlage

Michigan Law Review

Banks and other financial institutions may increase the amount of credit available in the financial system by borrowing for short terms and lending for long terms. Though this "maturity transformation" is a useful and productive function of banks, it gives rise to the possibility that even prudently managed banks could fail due to a lack of liquid assets. The financial crisis of 2007-2008 revealed the extent to which the U.S. financial system is exposed to the risk of a system-wide failure from insufficient liquidity. Financial regulators from economies around the world have responded to the crisis by proposing new ...

China’S Rare Earths Export Quotas: Out Of The China-Raw Materials Gate, But Past The Wto’S Finish Line?, Han-Wei Liu, John Maughan Nov 2012

China’S Rare Earths Export Quotas: Out Of The China-Raw Materials Gate, But Past The Wto’S Finish Line?, Han-Wei Liu, John Maughan

Han-Wei Liu

Several recent studies have discussed the ramifications of the China – Raw Materials case for China’s rare earths. However, none of these studies has conducted a thorough investigation of China’s current export quota regime for rare earths or how it might stand up under WTO rules, assuming that it would be treated the same. This article makes no such assumption, investigating China’s export quota regime for rare earths as it stands in early June 2012. The regime is somewhat improved over that applied during the Raw Materials case and could allow a more favorable WTO ruling. However, if ...


51 % Fdi In Multi Brand Retail: After The Inevitable, Maurya Vijay Chandra Nov 2012

51 % Fdi In Multi Brand Retail: After The Inevitable, Maurya Vijay Chandra

Maurya Vijay Chandra

The government has finally shown its resoluteness. The Indian market is now open for the investment in multi brand retail. The immediate reactions of various stakeholders are along expected lines. The left is afraid of the farmers being armtwisted in the long run; the industry is happy; the government basking in the glory of having overcome its "policy paralysis" and the political opponents have reasons to celebrate as they have unique "opt-in" leverage.

Toward A Legal Theory Of Finance, Katharina Pistor Nov 2012

Toward A Legal Theory Of Finance, Katharina Pistor

Katharina Pistor

This paper develops the building blocks for a legal theory of finance. LTF holds that financial markets are legally constructed and as such occupy an essentially hybrid place between state and market, public and private. At the same time, financial markets exhibit dynamics that frequently put them in direct tension with commitments enshrined in law or contracts. This is the case especially in times of financial crises when the full enforcement of legal commitments would result in the self-destruction of the financial system. This law-finance paradox tends to be resolved by suspending the full force of law where the survival ...

Basel Iii And Credit Risk Measurement: Variations Among G20 Countries, Matt Schlickenmaier Nov 2012

Basel Iii And Credit Risk Measurement: Variations Among G20 Countries, Matt Schlickenmaier

San Diego International Law Journal

Most countries require banks to hold extra capital to protect against unforeseen financial calamities; banks with riskier loans must hold more capital than those with safer loans. Basel II, a set of international banking standards, allows banks to measure a loan’s risk in different ways: some banks make their own judgments; others use outside agencies. The recent mortgage crisis prompted banks to reevaluate these methods, in part due to banks having failed to perceive the high level of risk inherent in securitized mortgages. The international community’s response was Basel III, an updated version of its previous standards. This ...


The Borrower's Tale: A History Of Poor Debtors In Lochner Era New York City, Anne Fleming Nov 2012

The Borrower's Tale: A History Of Poor Debtors In Lochner Era New York City, Anne Fleming

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

This study adds to the recent scholarship on Progressivism in practice—fine-grained, place-based studies of reform at the local level—but focuses closely on the relationships among reformers, industry, and the law that an earlier generation of historians studied at the national level and outlined in broad brushstrokes. This study also builds upon the creditor-centered work of historians such as Mark H. Haller and John V. Alviti, but moves beyond their reliance upon distinctions and categories, such as those separating profit making credit providers from philanthropic credit providers, which were less important to borrowers than they have been for historians ...
