The seminar focuses on corporate governance and finance in the modern era, and the associated legal, regulatory, and public discourse.  We will deal not only with issues relating to individual firms and financial products, but also those relating to financial markets overall and society at large.  In the past few years, there have been many interesting developments both in the real world and on the academic side.  Core principles relating to the purpose of the corporation (and other aspects of corporate governance), non-traditional investment strategies, and financial innovations can intersect in significant ways.  Students with no business or finance background can find many topics to write about in a thoughtful way.  It is recommended (although not required) that students either have already taken or simultaneously take Business Associations or Business Associations (Enriched).
