MICHAEL L. WACHTER William B. Johnson Professor of Law and Economics and Co-Director of the Institute for Law and Economics (ILE), organized, with co-director Professor Edward B. Rock, a Roundtable on Corporate Law at Penn Law School in the Spring. In addition, Wachter co-organized a Labor Law Roundtable with ILE board member Marshall Babson of Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue. In December, under the auspices of the ILE, Wachter and Rock organized a major two-day conference on Norms and Corporate Law, a symposium on the relationship between law and non-legally enforceable norms in the governance of business organizations. Wachter and Rock’s paper, “Islands of Conscious Power: Law, Norms and the Self-Governing Corporation,” was one of thirteen papers presented at the symposium and slated for publication in a special issue of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, which co-sponsored the symposium.
