UCLA law professor to deliver Pound Lecture
Stephen Bainbridge, William D. Warren Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of California Los Angeles will deliver the College of Law’s Pound Lecture at noon March 27.
Bainbridge’s lecture, “Corporate Purpose in a Populist Era,” focuses on the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and similar developments in parts of Europe. Commentators have widely acknowledged the rise of populist movements on both sides of the political spectrum indicating deep suspicion of big business. These developments could have important implications for the law and practice of corporate purpose.
Bainbridge is a prolific scholar, whose work covers a variety of subjects, but with a strong emphasis on the law and economics of public corporations. He has written more than 100 law review articles and 19 books. Bainbridge has been a Salvatori Fellow with the Heritage Foundation, a member of the American Bar Association’s Committee on Corporate Laws, a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Markets and Morality, and chair of the executive committee of the Federalist Society’s Corporations, Securities and Antitrust Practice Group.
Bainbridge’s presentation will be held in the Hamann Auditorium at the College of Law. It is free and open to the public.
