The Delaware General Corporation Law for the 21st Century

Editor’s Note: This post is from Lawrence A. Hamermesh of the Widener University School of Law. This post is part of the Delaware law series, which is cosponsored by the Forum and Corporation Service Company; links to other posts in the series are available here.

You are cordially invited to a very special symposium that marks and celebrates the 40th anniversary of the landmark 1967 revision of the Delaware General Corporation Law:

The Delaware General Corporation Law for the 21st Century

The Symposium will be held on May 5th at Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, Delaware. The event has been approved for 6 CLE credits in Pennsylvania and 6.3 CLE credits in Delaware (no ethics). Materials will be provided for self-reporting CLE for other states. We hope you will join us either in person, or remotely via a Live Video Webcast. There is no charge for participants attending remotely who do not need DE or PA CLE. (There is a $100 fee for remote attendance where DE or PA CLE is provided, and for in-person attendance).

For further information and to register, please click here. Corporation Service Company is the principal sponsor of the event.

In the current issue of The Delaware Lawyer, a variety of practitioners and academics (including Lucian Bebchuk, Robert Thompson, Michael Dooley and Charles Elson) present brief appeals for reform of Delaware’s corporate statutes. Many of these individuals, joined by Professors Jennifer Hill, Brett McDonnell, Faith Kahn, Elizabeth Nowicki, and Ann Conaway), will present more extended remarks about their proposals for reform at the Symposium. Vice Chancellor Leo E. Strine, Jr. will present the keynote address. Panels will address these subjects: The Delaware General Corporation Law and Takeovers; Stockholder Litigation Under the
DGCL; Stockholders in Corporate Governance; and What We Can Learn From Other Statutory Schemes.
