EDWARD B. ROCK L’83 was named the inaugural Saul A. Fox Distinguished Professor of Business Law in September, a chair established in honor of a 1978 graduate of the Law School. Rock, as Co-Director of the Institute for Law and Economics (ILE) with Michael L. Wachter, organized a two-day international conference on “Norms and Corporate Law” which explored the relationship between law and non-legally enforceable norms in the governance of business organizations. Over 100 scholars from around the world participated, as did nearly all of the members of the Delaware Supreme and Chancery Courts. Rock and Wachter’s paper, “Islands of Conscious Power” was presented at the symposium and, along with the other papers presented, will be published in the Spring 2001 symposium issue of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. Rock also presented “Islands of Conscious Power” at Harvard Law School and Vanderbilt Law School, and was an invited commentator at an April 2001 conference on the “Role of Judges in Corporate and Securities Law” at the University of Michigan Law School.
