In 1819, Dartmouth College won a Supreme Court case which paved the way for all American private institutions to conduct their affairs in accordance with their charters and without interference from the state. By significantly strengthening the contract clause of the Constitution, this landmark case planted the seeds of the modern corporation. The Center for Corporate Governance (CCG) at the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration is founded in the spirit of this great Dartmouth legacy. CCG is dedicated to the study of  how the governance structures of the modern corporation should adapt to increasing global competition. CCG will perform in-house research and teaching programs aimed at understanding how international differences in contract laws, capital markets, and ownership structures affect the design of an efficient corporate governance system. The centerís activities are aimed at top-level managers, current and prospective board members, large private and institutional investors, the government, as well as academics across the disciplines of law and financial economics.
