Asian Corporate Governance Seminar
J.D. Seminar 1046 (cross-listed) | 2 credit hours
This course will focus on the corporate governance law, regulation and policy surrounding companies in Asia. Financial crisis and corporate scandals continue to plague economies around the world and Asia is no exception. Despite differences in legal tradition, social history, and economic development, a comparative understanding of the governance of Asian corporates is sought by investors, analysts and policymakers alike. Asian companies, whether justified or not, are often viewed through the same prism. A comparative analysis will help reveal what similarities are relevant and what type of convergence in law and norms is occurring, if at all.
