Course Description

Major investors, including large mutual funds, increasingly incorporate the consideration of environmental, social and corporate governance factors into their investment and proxy voting decisions. As a result debates over social responsibility, gender diversity on boards, sustainability, and corporate purpose have moved to the forefront of corporate law. This seminar will engage with scholarship—as well as practitioner materials—addressing these developments and consider how companies are responding to these developments.
