The Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership, the Center for Ethical Business Cultures (CEBC), the University of St Thomas Law Journal, the University of St. Thomas School of Law, and Opus College of Business invite the public, scholars, members of the legal profession, and CEBC members to a one-day conference exploring key topics and issues in the development of corporate law and the history of corporate responsibility.  This program will explore continuing changes in the law that have or will influence the concept and performance of corporate responsibilities and governance. 

The event was inspired by the Fall 2012 publication of CEBC’s landmark history: BROKEN LINK--> Corporate Responsibility: The American Experience (Cambridge University Press).  Featured will be papers delivered by noted legal scholars from around the US and associated with CEBC and its work on corporate responsibility.  The program includes lunch and features a brief presentation about the center’s history of corporate responsibility. The program is open to the public, legal and business professionals, and scholars and students of business, ethics and the law.
