Presented by: Case Western Reserve Law Review

Summary: The Law Review Symposium Panel 1: Stakeholder Theory and the Relationships Between Host Communities and Corporations Throughout the 2-day symposium, legal scholars and practitioners will examine these questions: When a corporation operates within a community, what general obligations evolve out of that relationship - on the part of the corporation? on the part of the community? To what extent should a community or individuals in that community have stakeholder rights? Should they be able to influence corporate involvement in the community or establish which community related issues the corporation must take into account as it operates? From state and local tax incentives to eminent domain, what are the urban redevelopment issues?
