Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Corporate Governance : General corporate lawyers as well as securities lawyers need to understand the regulatory reforms of the last 10 years that have focused on expanding and tightening corporate governance rules. This seminar examines the various roles of corporate board members, proxy advisers, institutional investors and other stakeholders in implementing the broad reforms enacted to deal with recent stock market and financial crises.

General course Description:

Corporate governance has become a constant fixture of the legal and policy debates of our time. It not only figured prominently in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, the sweeping regulatory reforms of the last decade, but its reach has been far broader at both domestic and international levels. For a vast array of economic and social problems - from economic growth and systemic risk to rising inequality - improved corporate governance surfaced as a favored policy response. This seminar explores the central debates in this area with respect to issues such as board independence, shareholder voting and the role of proxy advisors, institutional investor activism, executive compensation, the question of short-termism, and board diversity. We will read works from the legal and economic literature and focus on current controversies. Special Instructions: Students have the option to write a paper in lieu of the final exam with consent of instructor. After the term begins, students accepted into the course can transfer from section (01) into section (02), with consent of the instructor. Elements used in grading: Class Participation, Written Assignments and Final Exam or Final Paper.
