Please mark your calendar for the next Securities Section meeting on September 24, 2018 with the presentation by Tim Johnston, this year's SMU Securities Law Research Paper Winner,  entitled "Is Mandatory Real-Time Disclosure Really Mandatory?  A Comparison of Real-Time Disclosure Frameworks and Enforcement". 

The presentation will feature a discussion about the standards that have been used globally to govern the continuous and ongoing reporting of material events in a timely fashion, and whether those laws are being enforced.  This program will also provide a brief overview on the advantages and disadvantages of a timely material disclosure framework, a comparison of the continuous disclosure laws from different nations, and an assessment of the various type of disclosure enforcement.

Also, please note, there will be no August 2018 meeting of the Securities Section due to renovations at the Belo Mansion.
