In 2020, Evan was appointed as the inaugural Executive Director of the Center for Business Law, and Adjunct Professor, at the University of California, Hastings College for the Law, in San Francisco (links). And also in 2020, Evan launched the Boardroom Governance Podcast and the Boardroom Governance Newsletter, a monthly newsletter including some of the latest trends and developments in corporate governance.
He has also served as a Professor at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile Law School. He is a former corporate lawyer with practice experience in Europe and Latin America. Evan has advised founders, executives, directors, and investors for over 15 years in Silicon Valley and around the world.

Boardroom Governance with Evan Epstein: McRitchie
On his Podcast page, Evan writes:
In this episode, I talk with James McRitchie, a shareholder advocate and one of the three most active individuals filing shareholder proposals at U.S. public companies. He follows a long tradition of gadflies such as the Gilbert brothers, Wilma Soss, Evelyn Davis, John Chevedden, the Steiners and a few others. Last year Jim and his wife filed 50 shareholder proposals, averaging more than 50% support. In his words, his proposals seek to make corporations more democratic and accountable.
Evan knows what questions to ask and how to draw out the best from his guests.
Please listen to the podcast and let me know what you think. Can we work together to make corporations more democratic, diverse, and owned by all Americans, not the top 3%? If so, send me a note. Collaborate with me if you share my passion for a more salubrious environment – a more just and democratic world.
Evan’s prior guests have been diverse and of the highest quality. I certainly have not had the impact of Mervyn King. So I’m delighted Evan is interested in the full spectrum – from governance gods to governance gadflies.
