This year’s Boston University Law Review Conference will review the past decade of investor activism and assess what lies ahead as we enter the Trump Era; an era that, to date, is characterized by record-breaking stock prices, newfound hostility to shareholder activism in Washington, and increasing political pressure on investors. This conference aims to take a broad, 30,000-foot view of institutional investor activism as these institutions adjust to new challenges. It is also timed fortuitously, taking place ten days after the 2018 midterm elections leading up to the 2019 proxy season.
