On September 21, 2015, the Delaware Counsel Group, LLP and Widener University Delaware Law School will host the annual Visiting Scholar in Residence in Corporate and Business Law Event.  The program, which is presented each year by the Delaware Counsel Group, LLP, is designed to introduce promising scholars to the bench and bar so that they may receive valuable feedback from Delaware’s internationally renowned legal community. This year’s visiting Scholar is Professor Verity Winship of the University of Illinois College of Law.  Professor Winship, an honors graduate of Harvard Law School, will base her lecture on her award winning law review article examining the emerging and controversial topic of shareholder litigation by contract.  Specifically, she will discuss current issues in the use of corporate bylaws and charter provisions to prevent or limit shareholder litigation.   The event will begin at 4:00 p.m. at the Wilmington Club in Downtown Wilmington.
