The seminar examines various techniques used to assure that corporate management properly serves the goals of the corporation and its shareholders. It examines in depth the definition of corporate objectives, the role of the board of directors and board committees, the role of shareholders and the techniques for holding them accountable, and the role of lawyers in the governance process.
