The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's definition of fiduciary duty allows institutional shareholders to vote against #ElonMusk’s Twitter takeover bid thanks to portfolio primacy. New piece on ProMarket by Bernard Sharfman, a Senior Corporate Governance Fellow with the RealClear Foundation, a research fellow with the Law & Economics Center at Antonin Scalia Law School and a member of The Journal of Corporation Law's editorial advisory board. http://ms.spr.ly/6185bzILN
The extensive collection available in our Law Library and support from our team of librarians provides the foundation students and faculty need to produce prolific legal research. Our four student-run journals are top notch— Iowa Law Review is ranked #12 out of over 400 law journals across the country. 📊 The Journal of Corporation Law - #2 in its subject matter ⚖️ Journal of Gender, Race & Justice - Ranked in the top 5 for two subject matter areas - #5 in the Gender category and #3 in the Race category 🌏 Transnational Law & Contemporary Problems Carissa Vogel, our Law Library Director, said, “Everything changed in journal support after we closed our doors last March, and, over the summer, a lot of creative problem-solving went in to conceiving support for a mostly remote academic year with new student writers and editors. The law librarians and the entire team onsite have worked tirelessly to make the source gathering, note consultation, and legal research refreshers as safe and flexible as possible. Our hats off to the journal students who worked so hard to keep their publications strong and a credit to Iowa Law!” #nationallibraryweek 1Ls – Journals are looking for you! The selection process for student writers begins directly after finals. Contact the Senior Note & Comment Editor from any journal for more info on obtaining your “write-on” packet!
