About the Center


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.
