The Evolution of Business Law in California and at Boalt Hall
Professor Richard Buxbaum, Berkeley Law
Description: Professor Richard Buxbaum '53 has been a keen observer of the business law terrain for five decades. BCLBE and the Berkeley Business Law Journal host a talk during which Professor Buxbaum shares his perspective on the development of business law in California and the role played by Boalt Hall in that evolution. Three generations of Boalt Hall faculty members were and continue to be instrumental in reshaping many aspects of corporate law and securities regulation in California, across the United States and around the world. At this special lunchtime talk, Professor Buxbaum provides insights into the interplay among the legal academy, policymakers and the commercial world that will help us better understand the current legal and regulatory environment governing the business community and our collective efforts to emerge from the Great Recession.
