Hot off the presses, a new coursebook for law school classrooms entitled “Corporate Justice” has just been released by the Carolina Academic Press authored by blog contributors Todd J. Clark and andré douglas pond cummings. This coursebook offers an alternative approach to traditional Corporate Law courses.
“Corporate justice” refers to a shared responsibility, even a moral obligation, between corporate decision makers, shareholders, external organizational constituencies, and society to ensure that the corporate decision making process is fair, civil, responsible, and just. More than that, corporate justice requires that corporations do no harm in their pursuit of profits and that shareholders as well as society in general have an affirmative responsibility to facilitate this pursuit. Corporate justice expects that founders, stakeholders, and executives in a business will honor human potential and eschew profits when such derive from unfairness, inequality, danger, and damage. This book explores each of these themes in depth, providing an insight practically non-existent in corporate law textbooks and treatises available today.
The book is available at the Carolina Academic Press site.
