    Comparative Corporate Law

    Visão Geral



    Corporate law is increasingly a global topic. In order to fully understand the business law environment, lawyers, judges, business people and scholars can no longer limit themselves to one legal system.  This is not only because in an increasingly global world, business transactions are not confined by national boundaries, but also because regulatory models and rules circulate among different legal systems.  This short course examines selected issues concerning corporate law and international corporate transactions in a comparative perspective, focusing in particular on U.S. and European law, but not only.  It builds on over 15 years of experience practicing, writing, and teaching in the area of comparative corporate law: the instructor has been trained in both civil and common law, and is currently a professor of law both in the U.S. and Italy.  The course also builds on a casebook on Comparative Corporate Law that will be published in 2015 by West Academic Press, authored by the Instructor. The course has been taught in a similar format to law students and practitioners from lots of different legal cultures, at Universities and Law Schools in Germany, Spain, India, China, U.S., Italy, just to mention a few.

    Topics covered include the incorporation process, piercing the corporate veil, the financial structure of the corporation (shares and bonds), shareholders’ agreements, corporate governance (in particular, directors’ liability), M&As and hostile takeovers.  The goal is to offer to students a solid understanding of different legal approaches to common substantive problems, in order to stimulate them both to consider critically their own legal system, and to be aware of important problems that might arise when dealing with international corporate and business transactions.  For these reasons, the course has both theoretical and practical goals: from a more theoretical perspective, it challenges students to think “out of the box”; from a more practical perspective, it broadens their legal culture discussing different regulatory strategies, adopted in different legal systems, in order to govern corporate and business transactions.
