OVERVIEW

This course offers an essential but in-depth understanding of the legal structure and characteristics of the Italian company law.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

With the aim of providing students with the legal background necessary to understand and actively participate in some of the most crucial events in the life of a corporation, the course addresses a selected number of corporate law issues through a combination of lectures and class discussions of actual and hypothetical cases. After a brief introduction on the basics of corporate law, topics include the incorporation process, limited liability, the financial structure of the corporation, principles of corporate governance including shareholders’ powers and directors’ fiduciary duties, capital structure; dividend policy; securities markets. While having an international dimension, the course primarily focuses on the Italian legal system with a wide recourse to case-histories to catch the evolution of corporate law through a cross-disciplinary analysis.
