This month's discussion will center around financial reform:

--The changing forum of securities disputes, discussed by Miller Canfield lawyers Matthew Allen and Jeffrey Rogg, will include the SEC's potential new rule bringing retail securities disputes back to court instead of FINRA arbitration, and what that may mean for securities broker dealers and their registered representatives.

--Fiduciary duty update: effect of the Dodd-Frank Act, presented by Miller Canfield lawyer Thomas Cox.

--Update of the Continuing Disclosure rules relating to tax-exempt debt obligations, presented by Miller Canfield lawyer Jerry Rupley.
