On May 6-8, 2016 Geoffrey Mazullo, Adjunct Professor, School of American Law (SAL) – Wroclaw, delivered a series of lectures on corporate governance as part of the seventh 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.
20 participants, current students and recent graduates of the University of Wroclaw, attended the lectures.
During eight sessions presented over three days, the following topics were covered: corporate governance models (including the Anglo-US, German, Korean, 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, the board and management; shareholders’ rights; environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting by listed companies; and the use of governance information by shareholders and stakeholders.
Students were exposed to financial, legal and practical aspects of corporate governance in several jurisdictions by analyzing a number of case studies about real companies (in France, Germany, India, Japan, Poland, Sweden and the United States).
In addition, students analyzed how corporate governance models develop due to country-specific conditions and factors (including culture, geography and history) and compared and contrasted the shareholder model with the stakeholder model of corporate governance.
