LAW 521 - Topics in Corporate Governance

This three-credit research seminar offers an opportunity for students who are interested in corporate law and securities regulation to develop their thinking further by researching, writing, and presenting a paper on a business topic. In the first half of the seminar, students will select paper topics in consultation with the professor while studying the theories and policies that underlie corporate and securities law. In the second part of the seminar, students will present their paper topics for discussion. There will also be several other small writing requirements. Collectively, the writing projects will satisfy the Law School’s analytical writing requirement.  Business Associations is a prerequisite for the seminar.
After selecting and researching your topic, you will be expected to write a paper on that topic of approximately 20-25 pages.  You will also be expected to lead a 30 minute class discussion on your topic for the benefit of your fellow students.
