At the heart of the Institute’s work is the roundtable series, which brings members of the Institute’s associate faculty and other academics together with corporate executives, practicing attorneys, judges, public policymakers, and students. Each roundtable takes up current issues that emerge from the research and teaching of the Institute and provides a forum for lively discussion.
Over the years, the Institute has sponsored roundtables on a broad range of topics—including labor law and bankruptcy, as well as corporate law, governance, and finance—engaging the interest and participation not only of scholars but also of leaders in the business and public sectors. The high caliber of the participants guarantees that each affair is intense and informative. ILE’s longstanding off-the-record policy for the roundtables is often the impetus for an energetic and wide-ranging exchange of ideas among some of the nation’s most accomplished scholars, attorneys, and business people.
