THE RUTGERS CENTER FOR CORPORATE LAW AND GOVERNANCE PURPOSE AND MISSION

To be recognized as the preeminent resource for corporate law and governance issues for New Jersey’s legal, business and nonprofit communities.

To serve as a home and base of operations for faculty teaching corporate law, business law and corporate governance subjects.

To develop a practical approach to corporate law and governance issues, focusing on both common themes and industry-specific issues in promoting best corporate practices and law reform.

To build bridges between

  • the Law School, the business and nonprofit communities, and the greater Newark and Camden communities;
  • the Law School and other academic units within Rutgers University that conduct business-related research or have a general interest in corporate law and governance, ethics and compliance: Bring business-oriented faculty, particularly in the Rutgers Business School, into the Law School; develop synergies in research and teaching with those in the Law School and Business School, as well as collaborative programming; provide exposure of law students to business faculty and highlight the benefits and opportunities of interdisciplinary work for both faculty and students; foster development of internships for law students in the business community.
  • the Law School and New Jersey government: Create opportunities for the New Jersey governmental business departments, members of the legislature, and members of the judiciary, to share and exchange information and perspectives with members of the faculty; serve as a locus for business law and corporate governance reform; create opportunities for students to learn about the government work in the regulation of business.
