Critical Acclaim
‘The scope, density and mysteries of the American securities laws cannot be overstated. Even to one who deals regularly in advising clients how to raise capital, there are robust fields, e.g., broker-dealer regulation and the securities laws own corporate law that is housed in the Investment Company Act, that are outside the lawyer’s comfort level. Professor Hazen’s book thus fills the need for everyone pondering that first step toward advising a client. He combines understandability with depth of coverage in this very comprehensive, and long overdue, pathway through the American securities laws.’
– James D. Cox, Duke University School of Law, US

‘Professor Thomas L. Hazen is a leading and much cited scholar on the scope and application of the federal securities laws. His most recent work, Advanced Introduction to U.S. Federal Securities Law, provides an invaluable overview of those statutes. It will be particularly useful and highly recommended for those unfamiliar with their mandates and for practitioners needing a refresher course on securities law issues.’
– Jerry W. Markham, Florida International University, Miami, US
