Joel is frequently asked to speak or lecture on special-situations litigation. In recent years, he has been a speaker, panelist, or guest lecturer at the Harvard Law Plaintiffs’ Association, the American College of Governance Counsel, Texas A&M University School of Law, and the Delaware Court of Chancery’s semi-annual judicial retreat. Joel also often represents law professors who wish to file amicus (“friend of the court”) briefs on novel questions of corporate law.
