Professor John C. Coffee Jr. Lectures at Universities in Hong Kong


Columbia Law School Professor John C. Coffee Jr. shared his considerable expertise in corporate and securities regulation with academics and attorneys in Hong Kong when he lectured last month at two leading universities.  

Coffee, the Adolf A. Berle Professor of Law, gave one talk called "Preserving the Corporate Superego in a Time of Activism (Do the Brakes Still Work in Corporate Governance?)," which was sponsored by the University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Share Registry, a self-regulatory organization in Hong Kong; and another titled "The Globalization of Entrepreneurial Litigation: Law, Culture and Incentives," jointly sponsored by the University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He serves as director of the Law School's Center on Corporate Governance, and is a fellow at the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.

Coffee is pictured above with Professor Hui "Robin" Huang, executive director of the Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development, assistant dean (external affairs – Asia), and faculty of law at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
