9th Annual Academic Conference

April 15, 2016

The Center for Corporate Governance invites you to join us for our annual Academic Conference on Corporate Governance. The conference features theoretical and empirical research related to corporate governance with a slight preference to the conference honoree. Each year the conference honors a researcher with an award for outstanding contributions to research in corporate governance and invites them to present the keynote speech during the conference. This year’s conference honoree is Laura T. Starks, Dean ad interim and Charles E. and Sarah M. Seay Regents Chair in Finance at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. Previous recipients were Jonathan Karpoff, Michael Jensen, Rene Stulz, Andrei Shleifer, Steven Kaplan, Harold Demsetz, Kevin Murphy and Michael Weisbach.
