Lots Stocks and Gavel is a blog started in January of 2008.  The main purpose of the blog is to write on issues in Securities Law, particularly regulation and litigation, in a manner that is understandable to the lay reader.  The basic philosophy is that much of the world economy is influenced by the trade in securities, and yet it is a topic that so few people know anything about.  Lots Stocks and Gavel is aimed at trying to broaden the audience of people interested in the ins and outs of the world of Securities, and do so in a way that is stimulating.  Since much of the information out there is laced with technical jargon, this blog should translate it into plain English.

James’s interest in securities law began while he was a law student at Ave Maria School of law, where he graduated in 2008.  James was the 2007 recipient of the Rakow Scholarship for the Eastern District of Michigan for his work in securities and business law by the Federal Bar Association.

In the summer of 2007, James was the sole American participant in the Total Law program at Central European University.  The course, run by a team of highly esteemed legal professionals and academics, concentrated on European and Global practice, with an emphasis on issues in International trade.  James has a diploma in Advanced European the Global Practise from Central European University, summa cum laude.

James was also a participant in the 2008 Jessup International Law competition.
