Adam Feibelman, Director of the Center on Law and the Economy and Sumter D. Marks Professor of Law at Tulane Law School, invites you to the next CLE workshop featuring Aaron Dhir, Professor of Law at the University of Connecticut School of Law. Dhir will discuss his draft chapter Black Star Line, Inc.: Race in the Historical Life of the Corporation on Tuesday, April 23, at 3-4:20 in room 257. 

Professor Dhir’s scholarly interests center on corporate law, governance, theory, history, and accountability. An internationally recognized expert on the intersections of corporate law and governance with diversity and human rights, Professor Dhir's book, Challenging Boardroom Homogeneity: Corporate Law, Governance, and Diversity has emerged as a blueprint for discussions on diversifying corporate governance and has been cited by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Nasdaq Stock Market, the U.S. Government Accountability Office, and members of the U.S. Congress. His current book project is a socio-legal history of the Black Star Line shipping company.

Dhir has contributed opinion pieces to The Atlantic, Slate, The Globe & Mail, and The Toronto Star, and his research findings have been discussed in outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Forbes, and ThinkProgress. He has served as an invited expert in policy reform initiatives convened by the United Nations, the Government of Canada, and the Ontario Securities Commission and has acted on cases up to and including the Supreme Court of Canada. He completed his graduate studies at New York University School of Law, where he was awarded the Arthur T. Vanderbilt Medal. More information about Aaron is here:
