Law School Announces New Business Law Concentration
MARCH 19, 2009—The Law School has added business law to its existing concentrations in health law and bioethics, human rights law, and labor and employment law. Under the directorship of Professor John Matheson, the business law concentration will help prepare students to practice in this widely encompassing field of mergers & acquisitions, international business transactions, white-collar/corporate crime, and much more.
Students will be able to immerse themselves in the extensive business-related offerings at the Law School and other University departments. They will also have the opportunity to participate in the Business Law Clinic, Bankruptcy Clinic, Tax Clinic, and corporate externship summer program.
In addition to Professor Matheson, Law School faculty teaching concentration courses are Professors Edward Adams, Mary Alton, Tom Cotter, Prentiss Cox, Daniel Gifford, Ralph Hall, Kristin Hickman, Claire Hill, Brett McDonnell, Steve Meili, Richard Painter, Daniel Schwarcz, Kathryn Sedo, and Bruce Shnider.
Concentrations build upon and complement the Law School's standard curriculum through interdisciplinary partnerships with other University programs. Completion of a concentration in business law will be noted on students' transcripts upon graduation.
