The Center for Advanced Due Diligence Studies (“CADDS”) is an independent, non-profit academic and research organization devoted to the study of transactional due diligence and related investment practices, governance, and ethics.

Our activities include academic research, graduate and post-graduate classroom instruction, seminars, speaking engagements, and an internship program. Our publications include the two-volume treatise Due Diligence in Business Transactions, the graduate and post-graduate text Due Diligence, a Scholarly Study, and our Occasional Scholarly Papers Series (OSPS). In addition, our digital library includes thousands of pages of public domain works in the field.

CADDS is pleased to announce its 2016 CADDS Scholars Interns: Christopher Cornell, Adam DeSilva, Hannah Mason, Jennifer Ohn, Jordan Sawyer, Meron Squires, Sarah-Michelle Stearns, Susan Wheat, and Liang Yue.  Articles by each of these students appear in the 2016 edition of the CADDS Occasional Scholarly Papers Series which can be accessed via the OSPS menu tab.  Ms. Wheat and Ms. Yue served as Co-Editors-in-Chief of  the latest edition.
