CASE STUDY (PROBLEM)
The Justice League, a team of super-powered individuals led by Batman (Bruce Wayne) and Superman (Clark Kent), is facing a governance crisis. The team operates under the auspices of Wayne Enterprises, which provides funding and resources. However, recent events have led to disagreements within the team about their mission and methods. Superman, known for his high moral standards and belief in the rule of law, advocates for transparency and cooperation with government authorities. He believes the Justice League should be accountable to the public and operate within the bounds of international law. Batman, on the other hand, values privacy and autonomy. He believes that the Justice League must operate in the shadows to effectively combat threats without political interference. He is concerned that too much transparency could expose the team’s secrets and put their operations at risk. Meanwhile, other members of the Justice League have their own opinions. Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) emphasizes the importance of diplomacy and peace, while Aquaman (Arthur Curry) prioritizes the protection of the world’s oceans. The Flash (Barry Allen) and Cyborg (Victor Stone) are caught in the middle, trying to balance their loyalty to the team with their own personal beliefs. The board of directors of Wayne Enterprises, who are aware of the team’s internal conflicts, are divided on how to handle the situation. Some board members support Batman’s approach, fearing that too much transparency could harm the company’s interests. Others side with Superman, arguing that the company has a social responsibility to ensure that the Justice League operates ethically. Lex Luthor, a member of the board, has been accused of using sensitive financial information for his own personal benefit, a potential case of insider trading. This has further increased tensions within the board and could lead to legal repercussions for the company. The challenge for the participants would be: to analyze this situation from a legal and strategic perspective, consider the interests of different stakeholders (including the public, the superheroes, the shareholders, and the employees), and propose a solution that balances the need for effective superhero operations with ethical responsibility and public accountability.
