Prof. Velikonja teaches courses on securities regulation, securities enforcement, and contracts. She has compiled a database of all U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission enforcement actions, which now includes over 15,000 defendants and nearly thirty enforcement properties of each enforcement action. Based on this information, Professor Velikonja has authored a number of academic research papers on various aspects of SEC enforcement.
