Corporate Governance and Ethics
Views from the Delaware Court
About one million corporations have their legal headquarters in the state of Delaware, including more than half of the Fortune 500. In "Why Corporations Choose Delaware," corporate lawyer Lewis S. Black writes, "I think the answer is not one thing but a number of things. It includes the Delaware General Corporation Law which is one of the most advanced and flexible corporation statutes in the nation. It includes the Delaware courts and, in particular, Delaware's highly respected corporations court, the Court of Chancery."
The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, in cooperation with the SCU School of Law and several local law firms, has brought several members of the Delaware courts to campus as Distinguished Visiting Scholars to explore the intersection between corporate law and ethics. The following videos capture highlights from those visits.
