John H. Stout, Melodie R. Rose

This course will familiarize students with the issues and subjects involved in serving on, and counseling, boards of directors of entities charted under the law. Students will examine the responsibilities and liability of boards of directors, which have come under increasing scrutiny from legislators, regulators, courts, stakeholders, the media and the public. The course will explore the failure of some boards of directors to take responsibility for assuming the development of an ethical culture in the entity they oversee , and their failure to assume responsibility for the organ- ization's integrity. Students will be graded on papers, the preparation of model board materials and classroom participation.
