The 18th Annual Stanford Directors' College 2012

About DC 2012

THE 18th ANNUAL STANFORD DIRECTORS’ COLLEGE will be held at Stanford Law School from the evening of Sunday June 24 to Tuesday June 26, 2012.

Now in its eighteenth year, Directors’ College brings together leading CEOs, directors, faculty, scholars and regulators from across the country and abroad to gather on campus for a rigorous examination of corporate governance challenges, with an emphasis on practical strategies.

This curriculum addresses a broad range of problems that confront modern boards, including the board’s role in setting business strategy, executive compensation, techniques for controlling legal liability, the challenge posed by activist investors, and dramatic new changes in the rules governing the election of corporate directors. The program is designed to generate practical “takeaway” pointers that can be responsibly applied to a broad range of boardroom concerns.

This year’s program will feature Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz from Andreessen Horowitz; Patricia Russo, former CEO of Alcatel-Lucent and director at HP, GM, Merck & Co. and Alcoa; Reed Hastings, Netflix Co-founder and CEO; Louis Freeh, former FBI Director; and Chancellor Leo E. Strine, Jr., Delaware Court of Chancery.
