Credits: 1 hour of general CLE credit
The New Separation Between Ownership & Control: Institutional Investors & ESG will feature a conversation between Professors Julia D. Mahoney and Paul G. Mahoney, both of the University of Virginia School of Law.
Our experts will discuss what scholars and policymakers have long debated: namely, whether corporations should serve social purposes at the expense of shareholder wealth. The SEC has recently faced calls to mandate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) disclosures. Should the SEC (and, thus, practitioners advising their investor clients) proceed with caution? Is the adoption of ESG disclosure mandates properly aligned with protecting investors and maintaining fair, orderly, and efficient markets. Accordingly, what policies should we hope to see at the SEC and what advice might we give our clients?
