Assistant Professor Christyne J. Vachon's recent article Playing in the Sandbox: Moral Development and the Duty of Care in Collaborations between For-Profit and Nonprofit Corporate Persons will be published in the forthcoming Pace Law Review Volume 33, Issue 3. This article, applies Jean Piaget's theory of moral development to relations between collaborating for-profit and nonprofit business entities. In light of Piaget's theory, Vachon conceives that autonomous, moral thinking of both collaborating entities develops better in a collaborative venture between a non-profit and for-profit if the for-profit does not exert constraint and dominance of a superior over the non-profit and the state allows for the cooperative venture to flourish with minimal interference from constraining regulation.
