February 22, 2024 2:30 PM



The nation’s top M&A and securities practitioners, leading corporate counsel and Wall Street investment bankers will descend on New Orleans March 7-8 for the 36th annual Tulane Corporate Law Institute, the premier M&A conference in the nation.

This year’s conference, to be held at the Roosevelt Hotel in downtown New Orleans, takes place Thursday, March 7 and Friday, March 8, and includes panels on pressing issues in M&A, private equity investments, updates on Delaware financial rulings, and emerging issues in ESG and regulatory environments.

The event is closed for in-person attendees, but online registration remains open. Register here.

See the conference agenda here.

The conference begins each day at 8:15 a.m. and runs Thursday until 5:45 p.m. and Friday until 3:15 p.m.

Among the notable speakers at the CLI are the Hon. Collins Seitz Jr., Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, Justices Karen Valihura and Abigail LeGrow, also of the Delaware Supreme Court, and Meena Sharma, Acting Director of the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Investment Security Policy and International Relations.

Tulane’s CLI draws hundreds of 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 the conference “the equivalent of Davos for the rainmaker set.”

This year, fully offered in person as well as online, the CLI is expected to break in-person attendance records, with more than 800 participating. 

The conference is offered with CLE credits and can be seen in a virtual format.
