Tulane Corporate Law Institute

The Tulane Corporate Law Institute is an annual two-day M&A and corporate law conference that takes place in downtown New Orleans every spring. It attracts the most high-profile lawyers and bankers from around the United States, as well as judges, journalists, and others who follow the dealmaking world.[1] The event typically takes place on a Thursday and Friday in late March or early April, at a prominent Canal Street hotel.


In the late 1980s, Delaware Supreme Court Justice Andrew G.T. Moore (author of Smith v. Van Gorkom and Revlon v. MacAndrews) and a group of New Orleans corporate practitioners were among those who undertook an aggressive goal: to establish a new annual platform for a gathering of the nation's leading corporate jurists and practitioners.[2] More than 20 years later, the Tulane Corporate Law Institute remains a critical meeting place for national leaders in the fields of law and business.[3]

The second day of the 22nd annual meeting (on April 16, 2010), coincided with the unexpected release of an SEC fraud complaint against Goldman Sachs.[4] The release temporarily disrupted the day's meeting agenda as the story made national headlines and SEC officials were sought for comment in The Roosevelt Hotel.[5] The news caused an immediate thirteen percent drop in Goldman's stock price, and a 1.3% decline in the market as a whole.[6]
