There seems to be one headline-grabbing corporate crisis after the next. When a crisis hits, companies must develop a strategy that takes into account both legal and reputational risk. All too often, companies, even the largest and most iconic, don't have a crisis plan in place.

This class will examine the role of different corporate actors (including the Board, CEO, General Counsel, and Chief Communications Officer) in navigating crisis. Through active simulations and case studies, students will learn how to ask the right questions. This course will be taught by:

- Berkeley Law Director and Senior Research Fellow, Business in Society Institute(Amelia Miazad)
- A corporate crisis communications expert (Aaron Zamost, former Head of Communications & Policy at Square)
- A general counsel (Dana Wagner, currently General Counsel of Impossible Foods, formerly General Counsel of Square)

Exam Notes: (T) Course ends in a final practice trial, arguments, or other presentation (e.g. Powerpoint)
Course Category: Business Law
