Hon. J. Travis Laster, vice chancellor on the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, will present “Corporate Responsibility: Is Delaware Doing Something New?” on Tuesday, March 3, at 4:30 p.m. in the Lubar Center as a part of the Law School’s annual E. Harold Hallows Lecture.
Laster has served as a vice chancellor on the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware since 2009. He also serves as an adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University.
Laster’s lecture will look at how Delaware courts may approach the important question of the human dimension of corporate accountability in the future. In 2019, the Delaware Supreme Court reversed the pleading-stage dismissal of a “Caremark claim,” a mechanism that can be used to hold corporations accountable for harm.
More information and registration is on the Law School’s website. The event is free and open to the public.
