Description

This working group examines property sharing corporations and shareholder corporations and how these two forms of corporations emerged. We will look at how shareholder corporations emerged from property owned groups. This year, the focus will be on the emergence of this between the 11th and 14th century in continental Europe and the British Isles. The group plans to share working drafts at the end of Fall 2017 and will meet twice.
