İstanbul Bilgi University Faculty of Law will present a certificate program in English regarding Comparative Corporate Law to be held by Dr. Carsten Gerner-Beuerle from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

The main purpose of the program is to examine and discuss advanced issues of corporate law on a comparative and interdisciplinary basis.  Especially, agency problems between shareholders, the management and other corporate actors will be identified and  the solutions to these conflicts will be discussed. In this regard, American and English law representing common law and German and French laws representing the Continental European law will be analysed. In addition, supra-national initiatives such as the harmonising measures of the European Union and international corporate governance standards will be discussed. This course will then assess the comparative effectiveness of the solutions found in the jurisdictions analysed. The program is not only for those who are interested in a comparative and interdisciplinary analysis of contemporary issues of corporate law, but also for those who would like to be able to make an assessment and interpretation of Turkish corporate law in a global context.

Lectures will be presented between 15-18 April and 22-26 April (Except 23 April),  between 18.00-21.00 in the Dolapdere Campus.
