This seminar will examine these questions through various case studies drawn from different industries, from the past as well as today. A desk book of materials including various articles, state and federal cases, and excerpts from recent federal legislation, will be prepared and made available from the Copy Center. A casebook is not currently required.
The goal of the course is to illustrate the variety and complexity of dilemmas lawyers can face when advising corporate clients, and help students use the legal tools available to them to work through these problems toward satisfactory solutions. As a part of the seminar, students will be divided into teams of two persons each, and each team will make a PowerPoint presentation to the class on a corporate governance topic, chosen after consultation with Prof. Lynk, involving a particular corporation or industry. At the end of the course these presentations will be complied onto a disc and copies of the disc will be distributed to the entire class. Each student will also write a final paper.
