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 current trends in FinTech and, using case studies, determine the application of existing federal and state securities and banking laws to emerging "FinTech" products (e.g., p2p payment services, "challenger banks", mobile wallets, online lenders). The course will examine the adequacy of existing financial regulation and the responses of the regulators to the FinTech products, as well as the role of the lawyer in assisting clients in developing new financial products.
