Corporate Law Policy
This seminar will discuss works on pressing issues in corporate law policy such as Dodd Frank mandated disclosure, Sarbanes Oxley independence requirements and proxy access SEC rule. We will discuss questions related to the choice between regulation and private ordering in corporate law and governance, such as how to interpret evidence from voluntary and mandatory governance changes. Some tolerance to economics recommended.
