In this seminar we will investigate topics in corporate governance, often from a comparative perspective, using concepts from general corporate analysis and often with a legal policy perspective. The topics that we will examine are likely to include the legal foundations for large public firms, the reasons for differing corporate structures around the world, private equity, hedge fund activism, the modern short-termism controversy, and the differing goals around the world for corporate governance and corporate law.
This 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.
Note: The credit breadown is as follows: two total credits with one credit awarded per term.
