Join American Promise President Jeff Clements, Business for American Promise, National Program Leader Elizabeth Doty and UCLA Constitutional Law Professor Adam Winkler in a discussion of the convergence of constitutional and corporate law. Discussion Topics will include:

  • • What are the major milestones in the history of corporate constitutional rights?
  • • What impacts have resulted from expanded corporate rights?
  • • What business, reputational, and systemic risks do companies face as a result?
  • • What are the major reforms being proposed?
  • • What questions should corporate clients be asking as they consider proposed reforms?
