85th Anniversary of the Securities Act of 1933
The Securities Act of 1933 was originally enacted to provide a uniform national disclosure format for interstate transactions involving the offer and sale of securities. The 1933 Act responded to deficiencies in state regulations and concluded that purchasers did not receive sufficient disclosure to make informed investment decisions—free from material misstatements or omissions of material fact.
In 2018, we are approaching the 85th anniversary of the 1933 Act. The SEC Conference at California Western brings together several key former and current leaders of the securities bar and from the Securities and Exchange Commission to evaluate the challenges facing issuers of securities, investors, and others to examine capital formation, investor protection, and market integrity.
California Western students may attend at no cost, and alumni receive special registration rates. Visit www.cwsl.edu/sec for more details.
