The 5th Annual Professor Anthony J. Santoro Business Law Lecture Series

Thursday, September 22, 2016
5:00 pm - 7:30 pm  |  Omni Hotel Providence

Featured Speaker:

Stephen L. Cohen
former Associate Director of Enforcement
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

Enforcing Insider Trading at the SEC: Big Changes, Big Challenges

For over ten years, Mr. Cohen, who until recently served as Associate Director of the SEC's Enforcement Division, was at the forefront of the SEC's investigations of insider trading and litigation against those found to have engaged in unlawful activity.  He was intimately involved in helping to set the Division's enforcement policy and working to enforce the rules against insider trading as interpreted by the federal courts.  From this vantage point, Mr. Cohen will explore in his lecture the current complexity and uncertainty of the law of insider trading and make some predictions about the future development of the law.  In doing so he will focus on the development of insider trading law, emphasizing the point that there is no federal statute that prohibits insider trading, but instead a rather vague SEC regulation, Rule 10b-5.  He will also describe shifts in the SEC's enforcement priorities and consider whether the law of insider trading is fit to deal with what is likely to be a significant increase in network hacking cases.


5:00 pm     Registration
5:30 pm     Lecture
