John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance

Dual-class stock: Governance at the Edge

“In April 2012 Charles Elson convened a panel at the University of Delaware’s Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance to examine the tradeoffs of dual-class stock. The panel was a smartly composed mix from the corporate and legal sector, the media, academia, and the institutional investor community. (This is the fifth in a series of roundtable collaborations that Directors & Boards has done in conjunction with the Weinberg Center of Governance over the past dozen years.) Highlights of the panelists’ spirited debate follow.”
