Business Law


What we do

The Business Law Sub-Committee brings together students and practitioners in early stages of their career to disseminate developments in business law, discuss relevant issues and share ideas about improving the profession and the practice of business law. The purpose of this Sub-Committee is to educate young practitioners, represent their voices and to assist with their transition into the legal practice.
