SLS Professor’s Article Ranked in Top 10 on the Social Science Research Network
Savannah Law School is proud to announce that Professor Judd Sneirson’s article “Beyond Profit: Rethinking Corporate Social Responsibility and Greenwashing After the BP Oil Disaster” has recently cracked the top 10 most downloaded papers on the Social Science Research Network in the corporate governance category. Professor Sneirson’s article, co-written by Miriam Cherry, was originally published in the Tulane Law Review and examines green marketing and corporate governance in light of the BP Oil disaster and identifies elements of each that encourage firms to engage only superficially in corporate social responsibility yet trumpet those efforts to eager consumers and investors. The Article then proposes reforms and protections designed to increase corporate social responsibility, root out greenwashing, and recognize liability for corporate social responsibility frauds on consumers and investors.
