Featured Panelist: Professor Kent Greenfield

 

The New England Law Review hosted a symposium regarding Boston College Professor Kent Greenfield’s book Corporations Are People Too (And They Should Act Like It). The panelists discussed the role of corporations in American society and their claims to constitutional rights. In his book, Professor Greenfield suggests that ending corporate personhood is not the solution since it is consistent with the purpose of corporations and the Consitution itself that corporations can claim rights at least some of the time.

Professor Greenfield’s book is the centerpiece of the forthcoming Volume 54, Issue 1 of the New England Law Review print edition. This issue will contain response articles on Professor Greenfield’s book from Professor Adam Winkler, Professor of Law at UCLA Law; Aisha Saad, Research Fellow at Yale Law; Daniel Greenwood, Professor of Law at Hofstra Law; and Natasha Varyani, Professor of Law at New England Law | Boston. Professor Greenfield will also provide comments on the responses.
