Corporate Misbehavior Conference
On Friday, November 12, 2004, the Brooklyn Law School Center for the Study of Law, Language and Cognition will host a conference entitled: Corporate Misbehavior by Elite Decision-Makers–Perspectives from Law and Social Psychology. The Conference description states:
The conference will explore ways in which corporate misconduct and scandals result not from the presence of a few ““bad apples”” among corporate executives and directors, but from systematic and predictable aspects of group behavior and corporate organization. Prominent social psychologists and organizational and management specialists will present and discuss their research findings and theories of group behavior. Corporate law scholars will then comment upon the implications of the findings for policy making.
The Conference, which will be held at Brooklyn Law School, includes both law professors and social scientists, and will present an interesting view of corporate misconduct. Check the Conference website for further information. (ph)
