Harvard Law School

This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts that deal with all aspects of governance related to finance. The journal welcomes research with a focus on how corporate governance affects finance or on using tools and methods from finance to study corporate governance. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the effects of corporate governance on shareholder returns and financial performance, the use of financial data for assessing governance arrangements, financial regulation, and agency conflicts within the firm.

This eJournal is sponsored by the IRRC Institute. The mission of the IRRC Institute is to provide thought leadership at the intersection of corporate responsibility and the informational needs of investors. While the Institute is a relatively new non-profit organization, formed with the proceeds of the sale of the Investor Responsibility Research Center in 2006, it continues the tradition and standards of objective research for which IRRC has been known since 1972.
