Corporate responsibility and business ethics:  Why doing the right thing is more important than ever


Friday, November 12

5:30 – 8:00 p.m.


Please join us for an in-depth panel discussion about ethics and social responsibility with Ambassador David Scheffer, professor of international law and Director of the Center for International Human Rights at Northwestern University School of Law. As the first United States Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues (1997-2001), Ambassador Scheffer is a sought-after speaker around the world on the topic of human rights and atrocity crimes litigation. 

Our discussion will center on the role of the leaders of corporations in relation to corporate responsibility and business ethics. How do you navigate your organization through different frameworks of liability in our global economy? What exactly is corporate social responsibility and what role should leadership play in it?

Seating is limited. Please register by Wednesday, November 10. There is no cost to attend; however, you must register in order to access the 15th floor of Deloitte’s building.

About David Scheffer

David Scheffer is the Mayer Brown/Robert A. Helman Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law, where he teaches international criminal law, international human rights law, and corporate human rights responsibility. During his career in the Clinton Administration, he led the U.S. delegation to the U.N. talks establishing the International Criminal Court and negotiated the creation of four other international criminal tribunals. He was senior adviser and counsel to Dr. Madeleine Albright during her years as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations. He also served on the Deputies Committee of the National Security Council (1993-1996). Ambassador Scheffer’s co-authored article on corporate compliance will appear in the next issue of the Berkeley Journal of International Law, and his new book, All the Missing Souls, about the rise of the war crimes tribunals will be published in 2011 by Princeton University Press.
