The Temple Law Review and the Center for Compliance and Ethics will host a symposium honoring the 21st anniversary of the Delaware Chancery Court’s transformative decision In re Caremark Int’l Inc. Derivative Litig. Caremark is widely cited for the proposition that corporate directors have a “duty of oversight” for a corporation’s management and activities. Although the character, scope, and liability implications of this duty are far from clear, it has become a staple of discussions about corporate governance and the emerging body of thought and practice on corporate compliance. Leading scholars and practitioners will assess:

  • Caremark’s impact on the development of corporate compliance, and how its contribution interacts with other drivers of the “compliance movement.”
  • The future of Caremark and corporate compliance in a rapidly changing regulatory environment in the United States and globally.
  • The legacy and future of Caremark’s impact on boards, lawyers, and the development of compliance as a profession.
