Last week concluded the annual Tulane Corporate Law Institute in New Orleans. Corporate lawyers and litigators from all over the country attended, although the largest contingency always seem to be from Delaware. Members of the Delaware judiciary, including two members of the Supreme Court and the incoming Chancellor of the Court of Chancery appear to be the only members of the judiciary present–or speaking on panels. Much of the materials focus on recent Delaware cases. Some wags refer to it as an unofficial meeting of the Delaware corporate bar, as well as those from around the country that follow and rely on the latest developments in Delaware corporate law.
The event is widely covered by the mainstream press and legal trade journals. See, e.g., the New York Times DealBook piece.
