  • Description

    The Ninth Edition of Securities Regulation: Cases and Materials brings onboard two new co-authors—Ann Lipton and William Sjostrom—to a casebook that has long set the standard for providing students with an in-depth, sophisticated, practical look at contemporary securities law. As it has since its first edition, Securities Regulation: Cases and Materials contains a very teachable mix of problems, cases, and textual material, encouraging students to build their knowledge base by being active problem-solvers.  Always forward-thinking, stressing current developments and controversies, the book is also highly modular, so that professors can easily pick and choose how to structure their courses without being locked into any given progression.

    Robert W. Hillman

    Robert W. Hillman is a Professor of Law and Fair Business Practices and Investor Advocacy Chair at University of California, Davis School of Law. "The road to practicing law internationally begins at home," said Robert Hillman. "The essential prerequisite for becoming a private international lawyer is a solid grounding in domestic law. Take as many business law courses as possible without regard to whether they have a domestic or international orientation. Knowing how transactions are structured, having the ability to draft documents, to negotiate effectively and to close a business deal-these do not vary whether you're practicing domestically or internationally." Before coming to King Hall, Hillman was general counsel for Star-Kist Foods, a job that took him throughout Southeast Asia, West Africa, Latin America, and Europe. After joining the UC Davis faculty in 1984, he evaluated Chinese law schools as a consultant for the World Bank and taught two semesters at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. He has also taught at New York University, Duke, Georgia, and Florida State. The job of the private international lawyer is neither easy nor glamorous, he said. "There are long hours on the road, negotiating in stressful environments without the support mechanisms you would have at home. On the other hand, there's a diversity about what you're doing that is not to be found in domestic practice. And your working environments are certainly different and stimulating."
