Notre Dame Law School’s Program on Law and Market Behavior will host the third LAMB Corporate Governance Symposium: Hedge Fund Activism in Corporate Governance: Empirical Evidence and Policy Implications on Friday, April 8.
This event will bring together empirical scholars of corporate governance finance from law and business schools to discuss the increasingly visible and controversial role of hedge funds in corporate governance and long-term performance.
The symposium continues to explore recent empirical findings on corporate governance and their implications for corporate law and policy. While the present symposium focuses on hedge fund activism, previous symposia in the series examined the role of intermediaries in corporate governance more broadly (October 24-25, 2012) and the desirability of limiting shareholder rights (April 15, 2015).
Participants will include: Martijn Cremers, Praveen Kumar, Frank Partnoy, Simone Sepe, Julian Velasco, and Avishalom Tor.
The symposium will be from 12:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the faculty meeting room, 2130 Eck Hall of Law. All students and faculty are welcome.
