The American College of Business Court Judges Sixteenth Annual Meeting took place in Jackson, Mississippi from October 27 to October 29, 2021. Current ACBCJ President Denise Sweet Owens sits in Jackson, as a Chancellor in the Hinds County Chancery Court.
Among other topics, the meeting addressed intellectual property rights, “The Cost of Truth,” artificial intelligence, shareholder wealth and corporate purpose, and private practice and regulatory authority post-COVID.
As we’ve previously reported, earlier in 2021, the ACBCJ sponsored two additional clerkship positions in the ABA Section of Business Law’s Diversity Clerkship Program.
Demonstrating the ACBCJ’s geographical diversity, next year’s meeting will be held in Long Island, New York, where Nassau County, New York Commercial Division Judge Timothy Driscoll, the ACBCJ’s 2022 President, serves.
