Policy Paper – CSEF/ Deregulation
*The citations need to strictly adhere to the foot-note style Australian Guide to Legal Citation (3rd edition): http://mulr.com.au/AGLC3.pdf

There is a choice of 2 topics and you are free to pick either based on your degree of confidence in your choice.

The paper was due on Mon 7 April 4pm and i’ve already been incurring a 5% per 24hr period penalty of the total AWARDED marks.

Obviously i would prefer it to be completed ASAP (hopefully by 12 pm AEST tmw 11 April) but i request that you weigh the balance between submitting an essay by the stipulated time or giving it later(albeit a better quality but an additional 5% penalty- in other words, whether submitting a better quality paper to me late(due to additional time) while incurring the additional penalty is more worthwhile than submitting a lower standard paper by 12 pm AEST tmw 11 April) .

Please use as many sources as you can/deem necessary to be able to submit to me on time.

The Question is as follows:

What is a Policy Paper?
A policy paper is similar to a submission to a law reform body or Parliamentary Inquiry where you address a specific topic of corporate law reform. It should focus on the issue that is set out in the question below and should develop a strong well-reasoned argument for or against reform. Additional sources to those referred to below can be used ? however we encourage you not to just re-state other group?s submissions to any Inquiry. The Policy Paper should also contain footnotes and a bibliography.

This assessment does require you to conduct independent research that investigates and analyses the topic you have chosen. The aim of the Policy Paper is to assess your understanding of relevant policy issues and your ability to develop a persuasive argument that takes account of how corporate policy operates in practice. Remember that your policy suggestions must consider all angles and balance the competing issues involved.

Topic 1
In September 2013 the Corporations and Markets Advisory Committee (CAMAC) issued a discussion paper on Crowd Sourced Equity Funding (CSEF). The Committee outlined a range of options that might be adopted in Australia to improve the regulation of this form of fund raising.

As a senior lawyer who has clients that engage in CSEF, you have been asked to make a written submission to the Inquiry discussing what changes if any should be made, and for what reasons, to the regulation of proprietary and public companies to allow for CSEF. In writing your answer you must address the relevant policy issues at play in this context.
Topic 2
One of the Abbott Government?s election commitments and key policy goals when forming Government was to decrease the regulatory burden on businesses to lead the way for productivity growth in the economy.

Imagine that the Commonwealth Treasury is now seeking submissions on the issue of deregulation and in particular how regulators could improve their interactions with business. They are replying on a Working Paper prepared in July 2012 by the Institute of Company Directors called ?Business Deregulation: A Call to Action?.


They have asked that in your submission you focus on the role of ASIC and any changes it could adopt in its interaction with business that would improve the regulatory burden it imposes. In preparing your submission, you should focus in on specific changes and argue why they are desirable from a policy perspective.

To assist you with background reading for this task, ASIC?s main submission to the Senate Inquiry into its performance has been added to the course Wattle site. However, please note that there are nearly 400 submissions to this Inquiry so you will need to be selective if you do chose to consult them.
