Seminar in Advanced Comparative Corporate Law
Course Number: LAW 6936 Credits:
This course will focus on corporate governance and regulations in America, the EU and some of Asia, to help students understand corporate law more theoretically, and prepare them for cross-border and global practice. Topics will include the usual corporate law topics but organized from a more theoretical perspective. For foundation, we’ll start with a comparative corporate law casebook, and then proceed to focus on presenting and discussing major academic books and law review articles from around the globe. Time permitting, we will also cover high stakes corporate alternative topics, like governance and regulation in private equity / hedge funds at the state limited partnership law and federal securities regulation levels, as an exercise in cross-entity comparative law.
