DLS strengthens international ties with Bucerius Law School (Hamburg).
Deakin Law School’s Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance (CCCG) along with the Bucerius School of Law, Hamburg are hosting the 2017 International Corporate Governance and Law (ICGL) Forum.
This Forum will critically review the impact that these business developments have for company law and corporate governance and related legal areas such as public law and private law, in areas like corporate law, tort law and tax law. The Forum will discuss to what extent existing legal concepts are still ‘fit for purpose’ or if they need adjustment and refinement, for example, the contested debate about group liability. The Forum will also look at recent developments in the home states of multinational enterprises which are intended to overcome the ‘regulatory gap’ such as transparency laws or duties to conduct due diligence.
Director of CCC-G Professor Jean du Plessis will be presenting his reflection on ‘Multinational enterprises, corporate groups and supply chains in a globalised world: Regulatory challenges and approaches, and the future role of company law and corporate governance’.
