The Auckland Law School is delighted to welcome Professor Stephen Bainbridge to New Zealand in May, as the visiting Cameron Fellow for 2014.

Stephen Bainbridge is the William D. Warren Distinguished Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. His work covers a variety of subjects, but with a strong emphasis on the law and economics of public corporations. He currently teaches Business Associations, Advanced Corporation Law and corporate governance.

Stephen and his wife Helen will be visiting New Zealand from 10 May until 3 June. During his visit he will give a number of lectures to staff and students at the Auckland Law School and will also give a public lecture at Old Government House on Tuesday 27 May at 6pm. More information about the public lecture titled Director Versus Shareholder Primacy in New Zealand Company Law as Compared to U.S.A. Corporate Law can be found here.

Professor Bainbridge is a prolific scholar who has written over 75 law review articles which have appeared in such leading journals as the Harvard Law Review, Virginia Law Review, Northwestern University Law Review, Cornell Law Review, Stanford Law Review and Vanderbilt Law Review. Business Insider Australia names Stephen in the 2012 Top 10 Published Law Professors.

In 2008, 2011, and 2012, Professor Bainbridge was named by the National Association of Corporate Directors' Directorship magazine in its list of the 100 most influential people in the field of corporate governance.

Stephen’s Fellowship is funded by Auckland alumnus Tim Cameron, a litigation partner in the leading New York law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, and his wife Kathy. Stephen’s Fellowship is the third Cameron Fellow the Auckland Law School has welcomed. In 2010, Professor Jim Ryan, a specialist in constitutional law at the University of Virginia, was the inaugural Cameron Visiting Fellow, followed by Professor Carol M. Rose, an American authority on individual property rights in 2011.
