The Evolution of Delaware Freezeout Law

  • From UOP to MFW: The Evolution of Delaware Freezeout Law

 Kahan先生の講義や指導教授のゼミでGuhan Subramanian, Fixing Freezeouts, 115 Yale L.J. 2 (2005)を購読したときのことを思い出しました。この分野は、判例法理の紹介が進んでいますし、ある程度研究も進んでいるように思いますが、ただ、その理論的な根拠はそれほど強固ではないように思います。ただ、理論的な研究を進めるためのとっかかりも簡単には思いつきません。2年以内にこの分野かMBOで論文を1つ書きたい(願望)なのですが、どうでしょうか。

California Bill Requires Companies to Include Directors From Underrepresented Communities on their Boards

On August 30, 2020, the California State Legislature passed a new and unprecedented bill intended to promote greater diversity in corporate boardrooms. If signed into law by the governor, California’s Assembly Bill (AB) 979 would require each publicly held corporation whose principal executive offices are located in California to have a minimum number of directors from an “underrepresented community” on its board of directors.
