Wade Presents Many Works, is Interviewed, and is Quoted

Professor Cheryl L. Wade presented her book chapter, Race and the American Corporation: The Rhetoric of Anti-Racism and Diversity in the Twenty-First Century, at a workshop on The Role of Corporations in Social Movements sponsored by The University of Iowa & The Journal of Corporate Law. The chapter will be published in 2022 in The Oxford Handbook of Race and Law in the United States (Oxford University).

She presented another book chapter, Perspectives in Corporate Law (coauthored with Martha Fineman & Anne Choike) at Emory Law School’s workshop on Vulnerability Theory, The Employment Relationship, and The State. This chapter will be published in 2022 in Feminist Judgments: Corporate Law Rewritten (Cambridge University Press). Professor Wade also completed and presented a second chapter that will be published in Feminist Judgments: Corporate Law Rewritten—Commentary on Walkovsky v. Carlton (coauthored with Janis Sarra)—at the Feminist Judgment Series Corporate Law Workshop.

Professor Wade presented her book, Predatory Lending and the Destruction of the African-American Dream (coauthored with Janis Sarra) as the keynote speaker for the Law School Admissions Council. She also presented sections of her book at: two faculty workshops at New York Law School and the University of Arkansas Little Rock Bowen School of Law; three academic conferences sponsored by The University of Houston Law Center, The Berkeley Consumer Advocacy and Protection Society, and the National Association of Consumer Advocates; and for the Faculty of Law, McGill University.

In addition, Professor Wade was a speaker at a launch for a book on climate change, From Ideas to Action: Governance Paths to Net Zero, written by Janis Sarra, for the Faculty of Law, University of British Columbia.
