PARTNERSHIP BUSINESS & LEGAL FORUM

 

EDHEC is a partner of the Business & Legal Forum and its director is a member of the Forum's Scientific Committee. This partnership has notably materialized through a survey conducted among EDHEC graduates holding management positions. The aim of this survey was to highlight the perception of these managers of the role of the legal environment in the strategies and activities of the company, the type of recourse to the law that the company can develop, the role of lawyers in this context, and the impact of the law on the performance of the company. The results of this survey were presented at the Business and Legal Forum in October 2009. A second study was carried out and presented at the 2nd edition, in Paris, in November 2010. This second study looked at the perception of law and lawyers by managers. A third study was presented at the 2016 edition of the Business & Legal Forum.

PARTNERSHIP AFJE

 

At the heart of the work developed by EDHEC is the question of the strategic role of lawyers. It was therefore logical for the EDHEC Augmented Law Institute to join forces with the AFJE (Association Française des Juristes d'Entreprise). The AFJE is the leading French association of lawyers and in-house counsel, due to its history, size, reputation and the quality of its work. Through its actions, it contributes to the development of exchanges between in-house lawyers and to their training, as well as to the visibility of the profession in the interest of companies and the French economy. This partnership took the form of a study on corporate legal culture and a column on "corporate legal culture", which was published in each issue of Juriste d'Entreprise Magazine. The latter was co-directed by Rémy Sainte Fare Garnot and Christophe Roquilly. This column has now been replaced by the [email protected] Chronicle. EDHEC Augmented Law Institute also regularly participates in events organised by the AFJE, such as the Campus AFJE.

PROJET TRANSPARENCY AND INFORMATION DISCLOSURE IN CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Since January 2008, EDHEC has been collaborating with two research laboratories of the University of Lille 2 (LERADP and EQUIPPE) in the framework of a multidisciplinary research project dedicated to transparency and disclosure of information in relation to corporate governance. This project was selected by the French National Research Agency and received a three-year funding. The objective was to analyse the positive and negative elements of transparency in corporate governance, by studying the current effects of transparency systems, which include norms, structures, and beliefs, on the interests of different economic actors and their respective behaviour. The team brought together expertise in law, finance, economics, strategic management, and business ethics. The project was completed in December 2011 and resulted in publications and a conference.
