[ Transactional ] Business Law: Finance: Capital Markets, Financial Reporting, Corporate Governance

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Transactional ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in Strategic Decision-Making : Lawyers who work with clients in the financial sector like pension funds and private equity often assist them with capital structure and compensation planning. This course should be useful for students interested in sophisticated approaches to investment and compensation planning.

General course Description:

Uncertainty with changing opportunity sets and adjustment costs shapes investment planning whether in financial firms, corporations or entities such as pension funds, venture capital and private equity, and, in particular, in non-traded assets or securities. We will develop an approach to understanding (1) capital allocation issues; (2) capital structure planning; (3) optimization policies with changing opportunity sets and adjustment costs; and, (4) the selection of levels of risk taking. These relate to planning for uncertainty. The following three areas relate to managerial effectiveness: (1) developing feedback mechanisms to adjust policies; (2) reporting mechanisms for management and investors to adopt policies; and, (3) compensation planning and business structure. These internal risks must be integrated with external risks such as geopolitical issues and fiscal and monetary policies in a global setting. I plan to discuss each of these topics from both a theoretical and applied perspective. I will provide selective reading on each topic and questions to provide follow on discussion during class. Students will work with me to flesh out not only the answers to these questions, but also provide additional questions and discover additional readings that are germane to expanding understanding and to following developments in each of these areas.

Course Style: A Substantive/Quantitative course is one that teaches the rules and theory of a quantitative subject area that relates to the practice of law.
