On January 14-16, 2011 Geoffrey Mazullo, Adjunct Professor, School of American Law (SAL) – Wroclaw, delivered a series of lectures on corporate governance as part of the third edition of the School of American Law – Wroclaw organized by the Faculty of Law, Administration and Economics of the University of Wroclaw and Chicago-Kent College of Law.

40 students attended the lectures. During the three days, the following topics were covered:  corporate governance models (including the Anglo-US, German, Japanese and Polish models); disclosure regimes; the legal and self-regulatory framework for corporate governance; monitoring of corporate performance by institutional investors; the rights and responsibilities of corporate organs, including the annual general meeting of shareholders, management and the board; shareholders’ rights; the use of governance information by shareholders and stakeholders; and reporting on governance indicators.

Students were exposed to practical and theoretical aspects of corporate governance in several jurisdictions by analyzing a number of case studies about real companies (in France, India, Poland, Sweden and the United States).  Each of the case studies contained elements related to one or more of the above-mentioned topics.
