Corporate Personhood coverChapman University Fowler School of Law Professor Susanna Ripken will discuss her latest book, Corporate Personhood (Cambridge University Press, August 2019), on Thursday, Nov. 14 as part of the Hugh and Hazel Darling Law Library Book Talk series. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the Darling Law Library at 4 p.m.

In Corporate Personhood, Susanna Kim Ripken highlights the complexity of the corporate personhood concept, which has captured the attention of many who are concerned about the increasing presence, power, and influence of corporations in modern society. Using a broad, interdisciplinary framework – incorporating law, economics, philosophy, sociology, psychology, organizational theory, political science, and linguistics – her highly original work explores the complex, multidimensional nature of corporate personhood and its implications for corporate rights and duties.

The Hugh and Hazel Darling Law Library Book Talk series welcomes authors on a wide range of legal topics to address the law school community throughout the year.

A Q&A and book signing will follow the talk. Refreshments will also be served. RSVP for the book talk on Eventbrite.
