Now in its completely revised second edition, Derivatives Law and Regulation is a comprehensive and accessible casebook for law school futures, swaps, or derivatives classes. It provides a straightforward and thorough framework for a course in the law and regulation of derivatives. It is clear, concise, and user-friendly, conveying an exciting and easily teachable insight into this field of law.

The casebook addresses the regulatory regimes for futures, options, and swaps of all varieties. It assumes no pre-existing knowledge of derivatives and the first chapter is dedicated to introducing what they are and their economic functions. 

Look for these key features:

  • Basic economic overview of derivatives and their function, as well as descriptions of futures, forwards, options, and the most common interest rate, foreign exchange, commodity, credit, and equity swaps.
  • Study of the jurisdiction over most derivatives conferred by the Commodity Exchange Act on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
  • The role of futures and swaps markets and their regulation, along with futures and swaps intermediaries and their regulation.
  • The investment industry and derivatives.
  • Examination of the contribution of derivatives to the Financial Crisis and the public policy considerations underlying the Dodd-Frank Act.
  • Focus on transactions, including the documentation of swaps.
  • Examination of the Bankruptcy Code’s treatment of derivatives.
  • Review of the CFTC’s enforcement authority, as enhanced by the Dodd-Frank Act.
  • The role of private rights of action.
  • Cross-border issues and the regime for their resolution.
  • Study of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s role with respect to security-based swaps.
  • Comprehensive glossary of relevant terms.
