The new Securities Litigation and Enforcement Nutshell focuses on an area of law that burgeoned more than a decade ago after the accounting and corporate governance scandals at Enron, WorldCom, and other large companies and then continued to expand with the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent legislation, including the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 and the JOBS Act of 2012. The Nutshell examines private, SEC, and criminal enforcement of the federal securities laws, with an emphasis on the elements that establish securities fraud, and the doctrinal and practical issues that typically emerge in prosecuting or defending such claims.
