Monday, November 14, 2016

Professor Seth Oranburg writes about equity crowdfunding in a new edition of Oxford University’s Business Law Blog. Oranburg, assistant professor of business law at Duquesne University School of Law in Pittsburgh, discusses why U.S. security laws must change to allow emerging markets of crowd-sourced investments to work effectively. 

Oranburg studies the impact of law on innovation and the economy. In addition to crowdfunding, he researches Internet shareholder activism, venture capital and angel investing, smart contracts, network effects, information brokerage, and other commercial activities that relate to securities regulation.

His work has been published in the Rutgers University Law ReviewCornell Journal of Law & Public Policy, and Fordham Journal of Corporate Law, and he has been interviewed by The Wall Street Journal and other media sources.

The Business Law Blog is published by The Faculty of Law at Oxford University, a federation of 30 law schools in the colleges of the university.
