SEC Chair Mary Jo White highlights the Tulane Corporate Law Institute on March 19 in New Orleans.
Every spring, Tulane Law School sits at the epicenter of the business world when attorneys representing some of the most powerful players in the corporate universe converge on New Orleans for the Corporate Law Institute.
Now in its 27th year, the institute brings together heavy hitters to discuss trends in mergers & acquisitions, shareholder activism, deal financing and legal developments in Delaware, where a majority of Fortune 500 companies are incorporated. The program even includes a panel featuring top business journalists from the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and CNBC.
The event, which runs March 19-20 at the Roosevelt Waldorf-Astoria, attracts members of the Delaware Supreme Court and Court of Chancery, leading corporate counsel and Wall Street investment bankers for continuing legal education and networking in an industry that is highly competitive and at the same time close-knit.
Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Mary Jo White is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at 11:45 p.m. March 19. White, who was confirmed to the post in 2013, was U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in 1993-2002, prosecuting complex securities and financial institutions fraud and international terrorism cases including the bombings of the World Trade Center in 1993 and of U.S. embassies in Africa. She also chaired the 200-lawyer litigation department at Debevoise & Plimpton in New York.
Online registration ends March 17, but attendees can register at the door during the institute. For questions, contact Ryan Lanza, firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-865-5900.
