Abstract

One place to address the negative perceptions of corporate law and lawyers is the basic corporations course in law school. Raising issues of race, gender, and class in this course can begin to break the cycle of patriarchy and disrespect haunting corporate law and lawyers.

This article explains why a teacher ought to endeavor to include such issues in the basic course, then turns to suggesting some specific methods through which one can do so. The article concludes by raising and responding to some possible objections to reform.

Keywords: progressive corporate law, teaching
