One of the big ABA Business Law Section meetings of the year (the annual meeting) is happening here in DC at the Marriott Marquis from September 12-14. I believe Law Student members can go for free, which is an awesome thing to do. Great networking, excellent programing on what is going on right now in real-life high-end law practice, and I’m not even mentioning the food and drink. Go!
The Business Law Program at the American University Washington College of Law includes an extensive curriculum, a number of student organizations, countless events throughout the year, as well as a full scholarly program. With over 150 different course offerings in business law and related fields, covering topics from antitrust to Regulation Z and everything in between, the curriculum aims to offer every course relevant to practicing business law, domestically and internationally, in the twenty-first century. Experiential learning in clinics and externships, both on the transactional and the litigation sides of practice, gives students what they need to develop and mature as budding lawyers.
Outside the classroom, students can compete in transactional and negotiation meets, can network with employers and alumni, and can participate in the business-related arbitration and securities moots. The BLP is large and vibrant and is always looking for and developing new opportunities.
