The business law program hosts a number of annual events that bring business men and women, entrepreneurs, attorneys, CEO’s, faculty, students, and community members to campus. Other events are planned by several of the business law related student organizations. Here is a list of the events planned through the business law program.
The fall forum brings leading scholars and practitioners together to discuss hot topics in business. Recent topics of the forum have included social corporate responsibility; success and failure in professional sports; and balancing investor protections, the environment, and human rights.
This popular event rotates between the Business Law, Environmental Law, and Animal Law departments each year. This year, the forum is organized by the environmental law program. The Business Law program will be planning the 2018 Food Law Forum.
Each year the Business Law Spring Luncheon celebrates the accomplishments of our students and gives thanks to the many members of the community who lend their time, resources, and talents to the curricular and extracurricular activities of the Business Law Program. The event also recognizes our Distinguished Business Law Graduate.
Each year the IP program recognizes a distinguished intellectual property professor or judge by inviting him or her to be an honored guest at Lewis & Clark Law School.
