The BU Law Business Law Society ran its flagship event on February 15, the 2013 Business Law Conference. The Conference featured four panels with a total of fourteen attorneys who practice with a variety of organizations including large law, venture capital, mobile technology, pharmaceutical, and business advisory. The panels covered emerging issues and career opportunities in Mergers & Acquisitions, Financial Restructuring & Distressed Opportunities, In-House Counsel, and Capital Markets.
Panelists and audience members alike enjoyed the discussions. First year students had the opportunity to network and learn from attorneys in a variety of practice areas. Students also gleaned several tips from younger attorneys who offered tips for early career success.
The Society extends its thanks to all supporters of the 2013 Conference including co-sponsors WilmerHale and Bloomberg Law, each of the panelists, Professor Kent Coit, Professor Kevin Outterson, and Professor Frederick Tung. And thanks to everyone who joined us on a holiday Friday afternoon. Looking forward to next year, the Society plans to run another conference and make this an annual opportunity.
