About the Section of Corporation Law

With a membership of more than 500 Delaware attorneys, judges and academics, the Section of Corporation Law promotes the objectives of the Delaware State Bar Association within the fields of law governing corporations and alternative business entities. Responsibility for leading the Section rests with the Section’s Council and officers. The Council and the Section’s LLC and Partnership Committee are responsible for formulating and recommending to the Delaware General Assembly, after approval by the DSBA, amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act, the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act and the Delaware Revised Uniform Partnership Act. The Section also fulfills an important education function, sponsoring one or more continuing legal education programs per year.
