Vice Dean Page and Professor Katz Article Mentioned in Blog on Philanthropy
Professor Robert Katz and Vice Dean Antony Page co-wrote an article “The Truth about Ben and Jerry’s,” that continues to generate interest. The article, in which they debunk the conventional wisdom that corporate law compelled the sale of Ben & Jerry’s to corporate giant Unilever, is the subject of a blog post in The Philanthropic Enterprise.
In their original article, published in the Fall 2012 edition of the Stanford Social Innovation Review, Katz and Page claim that although new corporate forms like benefit corporations and low-profit limited liability companies (L3Cs) can make it easier to pursue a social mission or run a socially responsible business, you don't need one to do so.
Professor Katz teaches the law of nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, the corporate and tax aspects of health care organizations, and trusts and estates.
Vice Dean Page teaches closely held business organizations, mergers and acquisitions, contracts and sales one and two, international law, international securities regulation, and publically traded corporations.
