Professor Bainbridge's Complete Guide to Sarbanes-Oxley

Is available here. Here is the description:

Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in response to major corporate and accounting scandals–and many consider the act to be the most significant change in corporate governance and securities regulations in the past seventy years.

SOX requirements have brought about far-reaching changes for public corporations, private corporations, and nonprofits. Every manager and director should be aware of how the business landscape will be affected.

The Complete Guide to Sarbanes-Oxley answers in nontechnical language such questions as:

  • What does SOX mean to me now?
  • Do I have to worry about it?
  • How much legal and accounting help do I need?
  • What information technology requirements will I face?

If you’re a business owner, you need The Complete Guide to Sarbanes-Oxley!

Interested readers may also want to take a look at Butler & Ribstein’s AEI analysis of the Sarbanes-Oxley Debacle as well as Kate Litvak’s latest empirical examination of the affect of SOX on the cross-listing premium.

One response to Professor Bainbridge's Complete Guide to Sarbanes-Oxley


    Thanks much for the plug. For the benefit of the legal academics among your readers, I should point out that this book was not written for an academic audience. In fact, it wasn’t even written for lawyers (although I hope they buy it anyway). It was written for business people. It’s non-normative and aimed at a lay person level of technicality. Anyway, thanks again!
