This clinic introduces students to public policy debates in the regulatory context. Students apply public choice theory and modern theories in corporate finance to debates about the content of regulation and public policy. Students and faculty work collaboratively to generate actual comment letters as well as publishable academic research regarding proposed regulation by such institutions as the SEC, the Fed, the FDA, the Comptroller of the Currency, and others. In formulating policy statements, students are encouraged to be cognizant of the value of markets and the need to improve the quality of public decision-making in areas related to the regulation of corporate governance and capital markets.
