Professional Development & Ethics
There are myriad opportunities for Wake Forest Law students interested in learning more about business to get involved and extend their learning opportunities outside the classroom. In addition to the student-led journals featured below and the Business Law Society, the Business Law Program, often in conjunction with other departments across campus including the School of Business, hosts career panels and a distinguished speaker series featuring successful alumni, among other business leaders. The Business Law Program also offers tailored advising as well as mentoring to interested students.
Every other spring, the Wake Forest Law Review hosts a business law symposium that attracts leading experts from around the world. Most recently the symposia topics have included “The Future of Financial Intermediation (2015)” , “Agency Theory: Still Viable? (2013)” and “The Sustainable Corporation (2011)”
The Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law publishes legal scholarship pertaining to a wide variety of topics within the fields of intellectual property law and business law, while attempting to focus specifically on the intersection between the two. Academics, practitioners, and students of the law look to the Journal as a source of current and historical analysis of developments in intellectual property law and its impact on the business community. Further, the Journal’s revised scope and mission attempts to create and integrate more practice friendly pieces in an attempt to become more relevant to the practicing business and legal community.
