History & Today

RTTB started in 2007 with the goal of bringing together students, faculty, and practitioners to provide a forum for discussing methods of improving the corporate governance process, the role of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and shareholder activism. Today, RTTB discusses all of these topics with an added focus on technology, cryptocurrency and blockchain, mergers and acquisitions, and other hot topics in corporate law.
