John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance Hero Image

The John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance was established in 2000, and is one of the longest-standing corporate governance centers in academia. It is the first and only corporate governance center in the State of Delaware, the legal home for a majority of the nation’s public corporations. Center programs, publications and academic research have helped to shape and influence numerous corporate governance debates and developments on a national and international level.

The center provides a forum for business leaders, the legal community, academics, practitioners, students, and others interested in corporate governance to meet, interact, learn and teach. Using the fully endowed Edgar S. Woolard, Jr. Chair of Corporate Governance as the base for the Center, our goal is to develop programs that will generate local, national and even international interest.

The Weinberg Center has published a new brochure (PDF), which focuses on its mission and related activities.

Conferences and Symposia

The Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance brings together professionals in corporate governance, law and accounting for conferences and symposia on the industry’s most critical issues.

At events such as The Auditing Committee of the Future and the annual Corporate Governance Seminars, guests like Vice Chancellor J. Travis Laster of the Delaware Court of Chancery, executive director of the Center for Audit Quality Cindy Fornelli; Glenn Booraem, Principal and Fund Controller, Vanguard; and several Securities and Exchange Commission executives collaborate with CEOs, directors, experts, students and audience members to improve and build the future of corporate governance.
