2013 Business Law Conference

  • Starts: 3:30 pm on Friday, February 15, 2013
  • Ends: 7:00 pm on Friday, February 15, 2013
Boston University School of Law has a storied reputation for banking, financial, and tax education. During the 2011-2012 academic year, the School of Law launched a new Transactional Law Program, which equips students with both doctrinal and practice skills necessary for executing business transactions. Kent Coit, a nearly thirty year veteran of Skadden, Arps’ mergers & acquisitions department, directs the Transactional Law Program. Also in 2012, a group of JD students launched the Business Law Society to complement the mission of the Transactional Law Program. The Society has planned the 2013 Business Law Conference as a multi-panel event to bring practitioners to the School of Law, introduce students to emerging issues and career opportunities in several fields, and host a networking reception. On behalf of the Society, the Transactional Law Program, and the School of Law, thank you for joining us at the inaugural Business Law Conference.
