Securitization, an important component of U.S. financial transactions, often receives little attention in most law school curricula. In the context of the current discourse among students, where some observers see a significant loss of public support for a market based economy, addressing the tools of Wall Street financial institutions with accuracy and candor has increased relevance.
This program will assist professors to be more conversant with teaching real estate securitization in courses ranging from 1L Property to Seminars in Real Estate Finance. It will include an overview of the systemic risks
that were involved in the 2008-09 financial crises and whether private sector and government efforts at ameliorating those risks are effective. Academics and industry experts will discuss the practical and sometimes ethical issues that arise in the world of special servicing of mortgage loans. Professors will learn about the arcane abbreviations and terminology of securitization and hear a candid expression of views on the fundamental societal issues presented by securitization, as well as current issues such as the phase-out of LIBOR. While the focus is on real estate securitization, professors teaching corporate law, finance and securities laws in JD, LLM, MBA and executive programs will also find it valuable.
