Tulane’s 33 Annual Corporate Law Institute – one of the biggest M&A events in the country -- is scheduled March 11-12 in a virtual format.
The two-day event will feature a series of panels tackling the significant issues in corporate law and mergers and acquisitions. Among the leading speakers will be Ted Yu, the Chief of the Office of Mergers and Acquisitions in the Division of Corporation Finance at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, the Hon. Collins J. Seitz, Jr.
The CLI, in normal times, draws more than 800 leading judges, lawyers, bankers, regulators, and other M&A specialists annually to New Orleans to discuss emerging trends in deal making. The New York Times has called it “the equivalent of Davos for the rainmaker set.”
The two-day corporate law conference -- which offers Continuing Education Credits (CLE) will feature panels and guest speakers on topics including global markets, issues of mergers and acquisitions, ethics and professionalism, corporate governance and the media, among others.
Other distinguished panelists include Delaware Court of Chancery Chancellor Andre Bouchard and Vice Chancellor Kathaleen McCormick.
Following the CLI, Tulane Law School will host the 5th annual Tulane Corporate Law Roundtable on Saturday, March 13 which is sponsored through the support of the Sher Garner Endowed Fund for the Advancement of Commercial Law and Tulane’s Murphy Institute. CLE is not available for the Roundtable.
The event is annually organized and hosted by corporate law Professor Ann Lipton, the Michael Fleishman Associate Professor in Business Law and Entrepreneurship. It runs from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (central) in a virtual format.
This year’s event will include such issues as the interstate and international markets for corporate charters, mechanisms for protecting retail investors, achieving racial and gender equality within firms, and collaborative processes for achieving firm goals.
