The Corporate Law Conference.

What and where is the major annual corporate law conference?

This weekend, the American Law & Economics Association is holding its annual meeting in New York at Columbia with a program featuring – depending on how you count – six or seven corporate and securities law sessions. But the majority of sessions are not on these topics; they focus, instead, on torts, litigation, property, labor, IP, &c.

The annual Canadian Law & Economics Association features a very similar format, as do regional associations (e.g., Midwest Law & Economics Association).

The AALS annual meeting has a session for corporate law and one for securities law – but, of course, they are only small components in an otherwise huge and ecumenical program. Something similar is true for the Law & Society Association.

Is there an enormous yet oddly shy corporate conference out there – or is this a curiously large gap in the academic calendar?

    Depending on the meaning of “the major annual,” one could note the following from the 2007-08 academic year:

    Georgetown University, The Williams Act 40 Years On (May 21-22, 2008)

    University of Cincinatti, 21st Annual Corporate Governance Conference: The Dysfunctional Board: Causes and Cures (March 14, 2008)
