Stanford Law Review Online Symposium on Salman v. United States and the Future of Insider Trading Law
The Stanford Law Review has posted a series of essays on Salman v. United States and the future of insider trading law. The description of the online sysmposium is as follows:
On October 5, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in an insider trading case—Salman v. United States—for the first time in nearly two decades. The Court’s decision in Salman is expected to resolve a major circuit split between the Second and Ninth Circuits as to when tipping and trading on stock tips constitute violations of the antifraud provisions of the federal securities laws. This online Symposium features the insights of five prominent securities law scholars (Jill E. Fisch, Donald C. Langevoort, Jonathan R. Macey, and A.C. Pritchard, with an introductory piece by Donna M. Nagy) into how Salman might shape the landscape of insider trading jurisprudence in the years to come.
