This course will provide students with an analytic framework that can be applied to determine the application of existing regulations to new financial products. Students will review the application of existing federal and state securities and banking laws to emerging "FinTech" products (e.g., mobile wallets, online lenders). The adequacy of existing regulation and the responses of the regulators to the FinTech products will be discussed.
