Behind the Debate
Generally speaking, Americans are of two minds about those who earn a good salary. On the one hand, it comports with our national sense of fairness, according to Pace Law Professor Andrew C.W. Lund, a leading authority on executive compensation. We believe talented, hard-working managers should be rewarded for revving up business and driving shareholder value. A heroic CEO, like a heroic athlete, may deserve, well, a heroic payday. On the other hand, many can’t imagine that anyone is “worth” the amount of pay some managers receive.
So, is CEO compensation broken? The public and scholars who study the matter differ over what this question means. MORE >>
A Conversation with Professor Darren Rosenblum on Corporate Board Gender Equality
A member of the Pace Law School faculty since 2004, Professor Darren Rosenblum has focused his scholarship on comparative corporate governance and international gender equality. From July to December 2011, he served as the Fulbright Research Scholar at the Faculté de Droit et de Science Politique at the Université de Versailles St Quentin en Yvelines.
He earned his B.A. (in Philosophy and French) and J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and a degree in International Affairs at Columbia University. Professor Rosenblum has lectured and taught in Spanish, Portuguese, and French in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Germany, Peru, and in the United States. He teaches Corporations, International Business Transactions, Contracts and a seminar on gender equality. Professor Rosenblum recently was named faculty liaison to the Institute of International Commercial Law. In that capacity he will integrate the workings of the Institute with the scholarship and workings of the Law School.
We had a chance to chat with Professor Rosenblum about his Fulbright research and corporate board gender equality. MORE >>
Focus on: Institute of International Commercial Law
In a world prior to the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), a transaction between a business in China and one in the US would typically put one party at a disadvantage to the other if a dispute arose as the law of one country would apply to the exclusion of another. The CISG evened the playing field by providing an overarching international sales law which could be uniformly applied, enabling more predictability in these outcomes.
At this time a visionary from Pace Law School named Albert H. Kritzer conceived of the CISG Database, which would become, in his lifetime, the foremost repository of citations, cases, and texts on international sales law. The CISG Database and its home institute, the Institute of International Commercial Law (IICL) were founded at Pace Law School and are now in the hands of director Vikki Rogers. MORE >>
