Laura Posner to Lecture on Market Manipulation

Columbia Law School

April 2, 2024

Laura Posner, a partner in our Securities Litigation & Investor Protection practice, has been invited to guest teach a research seminar on Market Manipulation at Columbia Law School on April 2, 2024.

This seminar is a “deep dive” into market manipulation, with an emphasis on the securities markets and extensions to the commodities and futures markets. The seminar covers the history of prohibitions on market manipulation, literature on the conditions under which manipulation is expected to be profitable, and critically appraises enforcement actions and criminal prosecutions for specific types of manipulation: wash trading / matched orders, spoofing and layering, “open-market” strategies like banging the close and cross-market manipulation.
