Michael Cody is a PhD Student in the Faculty of Law at UBC. His research focuses on approaching corporations, corporate law, and corporate regulation from a human and social perspective. His current project is investigating a collaborative learning loop process for corporate regulation that proposes that regulators and corporations would work together to try and change corporate cultures. His main interest is how people and groups learn (as opposed to simply changing their behaviour) and how small learned changes in interactions between and among people can cause even more significant emergent changes in social systems.
Michael has been a lawyer at a Bay Street Firm, in-house counsel for three TSX listed companies, a corporate change consultant, and a corporate executive. He has a BA from The University of Western Ontario, a LLB from Western, and an LLM from UBC.
