Speaker series to focus on business law

by Karmen Dowling | September 24, 2008

Torys LLP and Western alumni at the firm have donated $200,000 to support The Pre-Eminent Business Law Speaker Series for the next five years. The firm will also allocate another $50,000 in proceeds from their existing endowment at Foundation Western towards the series.

The Torys LLP Business and Law Scholars Seminar Series, organized by Prof. Christopher Nicholls, will host some of the world’s preeminent business law scholars. Approximately once each month during the academic year, Western Law will host one business law scholar who will present a paper in her or his area of expertise. Students will gain an enhanced learning experience through the opportunity to engage with some of the world’s most influential corporate law scholars and hear their perspectives on business law.

Due to high demand, the speaker series will accommodate 35-40 second- and third-year students who must register to attend.
