Upcoming Event: Enforcement of Securities Law Violations

SPRING TERM ROUNDTABLE

 ENFORCEMENT OF SECURITIES LAW VIOLATIONS

April 26, 2017

11:00 am – 2:00 pm

University of Toronto Faculty of Law
Jackman Law Building, Room J140

This roundtable will discuss two empirical projects relating to the enforcement of securities law violations. The first project centres on the argument that relative to the United States, Canada tends to pursue more standard insider trading actions that focus on a top insider or advisors of an insider and a single traded company (as opposed to multiple company insider trading enforcement actions). The second project relates to settlements of securities law violations and provides empirical data regarding the use of settlements in the Canadian context. Draft papers will be circulated to roundtable participants in advance and questions from the floor will be encouraged.
