Experts Discuss Legal Tools to Prevent Corporate Mismanagement
On August 23-25, UC Berkeley’s newest academic law journal, the Berkeley Business Law Journal (BBLJ), will host “The Role of Law in Promoting Long-Term Value for Shareholders.” The symposium will explore the rules and incentives available to encourage corporations to focus on long-term shareholder benefits instead of short-term executive interests, and the methods shareholders have used to assert power over corporate boards and executives.
The conference will begin Saturday, August 23, with a formal banquet featuring two keynote speakers: Marianne Jennings, a professor at Arizona State University, widely syndicated columnist and leading expert on business ethics; and Paula Boggs, general counsel, vice president and secretary of the Starbucks Coffee Company, former vice president at Dell and partner at Preston Gates. The event will continue with panel discussions by leading law and business experts from across the country. Papers presented at this symposium will be included in the BBLJ’s premier issue scheduled for January 2004.
