CII educates its members on topical legal issues that relate to corporate governance or shareholder rights via our weekly CII Governance Alert newsletter, our member listserv, published reports, webinars, podcasts, and sessions at our semi-annual conferences. CII also regularly advocates on a range of legal issues with policymakers, including the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Delaware State Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.
CII engages in litigation on a limited basis, generally by filing a brief as an amicus curiae (friend of the court) in support of a party in a lawsuit. CII considers filing as an amicus curiae based on a board-approved policy that requires consideration of a number of factors. Those factors include whether the case involves an issue that is addressed in CII policies or on which our organization has taken a public position, and whether there is an opportunity for CII to provide a perspective that is not discussed fully in the brief of the party being supported or by other amici.
