This course will introduce students to "FinTech" products, such as p2p payments, neo banks, platform lenders and crypto currencies, and provide them with a 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. The course will examine the adequacy of existing financial regulation to protect consumers using FinTech products and the responses of the regulators to FinTech. Particular focus will be placed on the role of the lawyer in assisting clients in developing new financial products.

Paul Clark was a partner in the Washington, DC, office of Seward & Kissel for over 30 years before becoming Senior Counsel. He continues to work with both traditional financial services companies and non-traditional FinTech companies on new products.

We also have special academic rules for these condensed courses:
-Students must attend each course session and cannot attend any course session remotely (even for illness or emergency situations).
-The Registrar’s Office will drop a student who does not attend each course session.

Due to the condensed nature of this course, in-person attendance at all course sessions is mandatory. Absences cannot be excused for any reason, including illness or emergencies. The Registrar’s Office will drop any student who misses a session.
