Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation

The SEC has announced the panelists and agenda for the Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation, which will be held November 21 in Washington D.C. at SEC headquarters at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20549 this year.  With the recent developments regarding exemptions from registration, this promises to be an especially interesting event this year and well worth attending.

My only complaint is that no one from the legal academy is on the agenda.  The SEC could be providing an additional benefit to the public by encouraging more academics to think about entrepreneurship law as it relates to securities regulation.

The SEC is certainly not averse to having legal academics on these panels. Two years ago, both I and Jack Coffee were on the panel.

I'm sorry I missed that event. I would be a lot more comfortable if scholars of the caliber of Jack Coffee and you were on these type of panels on a more regular basis. One of the things that securities regulation scholars have done well is engage with regulators and practitioners. My hope is that tradition continues.
