This year’s Abraham L. Pomerantz Lecture at Brooklyn Law School will focus on the public documents that corporations file to describe the way each corporation governs.
The lecture, to be held Thursday, Sept. 26 at 5 p.m., addresses the theory of “publicness,” a term that encompasses the shift in corporate governance from shareholders, officers, and directors to a larger set of actors beyond those on Wall Street.
Keynote speaker Hillary Sale, the Walter D. Coles professor of law and professor of management at Washington University School of Law, will explore the role that non-regulators can play in constraining the choices of corporate actors – through both the pressure for increased regulation and an insistence on publicness itself.
The Pomerantz Lecture honors the life and work of Abraham L. Pomerantz, a 1924 graduate of Brooklyn Law School. The lecture series focuses on topics of corporate securities law and related issues of professional responsibility. The law firm of Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP, of which Abraham Pomerantz was the founding partner, provides continuing support for this series.
