The twelfth annual (and second virtual) National Business Law Scholars Conference (NBLSC) is being hosted by The University of Tennessee College of Law on Zoom this Thursday and Friday, June 17 and 18. The schedule for the two days of proceedings (fashioned painstakingly and patiently by planning committee member Eric Chaffee) can be found here. Zoom links for each session are included.
This year's conference boasts, in addition to the NBLSC's flagship scholarly paper panels, a Thursday plenary session at 1:00 pm (Eastern Daylight Time) entitled "Beyond Shareholder Primacy." The session focuses on Matt Bodie and Grant Hayden's new book, Reconstructing the Corporation: From Shareholder Primacy to Shared Governance, which follows on their 2020 Boston University Law Review article "The Corporation Reborn: From Shareholder Primacy to Shared Governance." The 2021 conference also features a later start time each day to be more inclusive of our West coast participants.
I join the rest of the planning committee (listed below) in looking forward to seeing many of you at the conference. Please contact any of us with questions.
