Comparative Corporate Governance

Return to Course Catalog

Fall 2012 Seminar
Meets: Th 5:00pm - 7:00pm in WCC Room 3013
2 classroom credits
This seminar will discuss comparative corporate governance mainly with a legal policy perspective. Likely topics include venture capital, ownership structures and deviations from the one-share-one-vote principle, tunneling, the market for corporate control, institutional investor activism, and the differing corporate law enforcement mechanisms we observe around the world. There will be no examination. Instead, students will be asked to submit, before at least nine of the twelve sessions, a brief memo on the assigned readings. Grades will be based on these memos and, to a lesser extent, on participation in class discussion. The seminar is given in association with the LLM corporate governance concentration, although enrollment is not limited to those students.

Subject Areas: Business Organization, Commercial Law, and Finance , International, Comparative & Foreign Law .
