We will focus on the legal rules and corporate governance norms that constrain and should shape the actions of a Board of Directors. We will start with the general aims of corporate governance and the primary legal duties of officers and directors.  These legal duties are easy to state -- directors must act in the best interest of the firm, work hard and tell the truth.  Though these rules are easy to state, they are often hard to apply.  So we will spend most of our time working through examples of how these duties play out in specific settings.
