Corporate Governance, Fiduciary Duty and Social Responsibility [DOC]

This paper will suggest that a more spacious view of inveterate and unchanging legal concepts – such as the law of trusts – provide a framework for the construction of ethical corporations. We will suggest that ethical corporate behavior is characterized by three principal norms.

  • Health – concern for the well being and biological survival of human participants
  • Care of Infants – Concern with the long term - of sustainability
  • Fairness – inter generational, inter national, and between the various components of the corporate constellation. Sharing of risks and benefits.


For The Association of American Law Schools Annual Meeting January 2010. Speech not given and Bob did not attend.
