The Future of the Firm

The Impact of Technology, Innovation and Industrial Change

The Future of the Firm

*** This Event was by invitation only. ***

Corporations, and other forms of business associations, have been the subject of intense study including their history, governance, and obligations to stakeholders and the public at large. However, surprisingly, the future of business and the corporate form has been somewhat neglected. Triggered in part by technological advances in recent years, this is now changing. The Conference on the Future of the Firm aimed to contribute to this emerging scholarly focus, bringing together research and stimulating debate in a cutting edge area of the law.

Felix Steffek, University of Cambridge
