NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma College of Law hosted the annual Oklahoma Law Review Symposium Friday, Nov. 11. This year’s theme was “Confronting New Market Realities: Implications for Stockholder Rights to Vote, Sell, and Sue.”
The event consisted of three panels featuring expert speakers from a variety of business backgrounds including members of Delaware’s bench and bar and legal academia. The topics and panelists included:
Right to Vote: Afra Afsharipour, professor of law, UC Davis School of Law; D. Gordon Smith, Dean and Glen L. Farr Professor of Law, Brigham Young University J. Reuben Clark Law School; Randall Thomas, John S. Beasley II Chair in Law & Business, Vanderbilt Law School; and John Mark Zeberkiewicz, director, Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A.
Right to Sell: Joan MacLeod Heminway, Rick Rose Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Tennessee College of Law; Charles Korsmo, associate professor of law, Case Western Reserve University School of Law; and James Park, professor of law, UCLA School of Law
Right to Sue: Jessica Erickson, associate dean for faculty development and professor of law, University of Richmond School of Law; Sean Griffith, T.J. Maloney Chair in Business Law and director, Fordham Corporate Law Center, Fordham University School of Law; and J. Travis Laster, vice chancellor, Delaware Court of Chancery
“This year’s topic on the intersection of business and law explored the changing role of stockholders in today’s public corporation,” said OU Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “By segmenting the symposium and focusing on the rights of stockholders to vote, sell and sue, our students were able to delve deeper into the nuances of corporate and securities law, providing them with greater clarity on issues of governance.”
Megan W. Shaner, associate professor of law at the University of Oklahoma, served as panel moderator. After presentations by the panelists, attendees posed questions for further discussion.
