Derivatives and Structured Products Law Committee

The mission of the Derivatives and Structured Products Law Committee is to apprise members of developments in laws relating to the futures and derivatives markets and to maintain liaisons with trade associations, industry leaders, and representatives of governmental and regulatory bodies, such as the SEC, the CFTC, and the Federal Reserve System. Over the past year, the Committee has hosted meetings that brought the membership valuable information and interaction with important figures directly or indirectly involved in the futures and derivatives markets. Based on their positive experiences to date, members are seeking to expand membership by continuing to refine this mission and by sharing their experience with colleagues and contacts.

Our Committee meets one day each month, typically around lunchtime, during which time we have presentations by members and guest speakers covering a variety of intriguing topics relating to the futures and derivatives markets. We also seek out opportunities to prepare comment letters and articles.

If you are interested in joining our Committee, you may join here. When completing your membership in the Association, be sure to elect to join the Business Law Section and the Derivatives and Structured Products Law Committee.
