On Friday 8th 2018, Brunel Law School organised the first Corporate Governance Conference on ‘Reforming Corporate Governance: News Rules or New Culture?’. It was an interdisciplinary conference, which focused on the role of culture in corporate governance and financial markets, building on a number of interesting contributions by academics and practitioners with a law, economics, finance and management background. The panel presentations were followed by an engaging roundtable discussion on culture, regulation and the way forward.
The successful event was attended by academics, lawyers and students, who all contributed to a fruitful exchange of ideas and dialogue throughout the day. The Vice Chancellor of Brunel University London, Professor Julia Buckingham, CBE, commented that such stimulating conferences reflect the research activity of Brunel Law School and its strategic plan to establish itself as a centre of excellence in the areas of corporate law, financial regulation, banking law and commercial law in general. Prof Arad Reisberg, the Head of Brunel Law School, thanked everybody involved for all their hard work and promised that this was the first in a series of influential conferences organised by Brunel Law School in the near future.
