In this seminar we will investigate topics in corporate governance, often from a comparative perspective, using concepts from general corporate theory and often with a legal policy perspective. The topics that we will examine are likely to include private equity, hedge fund activism, foundations for large firms, the reasons for differing corporate structures around the world, and the differing goals of corporate governance and corporate law. The seminar is given in association with the LLM corporate governance concentration, although enrollment is not necessarily limited to those students. The seminar will meet 12 times throughout the academic year.
