This paper is a written version of brief remarks prepared for a conference on “Restoring Trust in the Private Sector” held at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in March, 2009. The key point is that corporate law professors are “gatekeepers” into a corporate law practice. Highlighting just a couple of facets of this role, the paper argues that we who teach corporate law must make sure we are doing all we can to instill right thinking and right conduct in those who eventually will counsel key decision-makers in the corporate setting. We should probe a broad range of issues with our students, including societal expectations of business.
