The SEC refuses to laterally hire attorneys who have solid litigation experience but no securities law specific experience. It is that mindset that has caused its "glut" of vacancies, but that is a poor hiring strategy, especially in light of the SEC's poor enforcement performance.

Ironically, the SEC was created to prevent a second Great Depression, but its "securities law club" lawyers have completely failed that mission.
