Corporate Law Center Programs

Business law practitioners series

This program series is a career-focused series for students, invites distinguished alumni and friends of the law school to share insights with students about legal and business careers in an informal lunch-time setting. Pizza and soda are provided. Students learn of the many facets of business and business law, and also develop an appreciation of the breadth of careers for which their legal education prepares them. Our guests describe their work, explain the nature of the issues they regularly address and talk with students following their presentations. The series attracts a wide student audience, from first-year students to those in the LLM programs.


The Corporate Law Center is pleased to develop and sponsor panel discussions on interesting topics within business and financial law.

Breakfast forums

This breakfast series, established in Spring 2012 and moderated by Fordham Law Adjunct Professor Kent Bernard, invites the general counsel of large multinational organizations to talk informally with students about their in-house practice. Many students attending are LL.M. candidates or visiting Scholars and Researchers. The small group setting allows for an excellent interchange between speakers and students. Speakers are most gracious about networking opportunities.

Book talk events 

Authors of recently published books speak with students, faculty, alumni, and the general public about their work. Opportunities to purchase the book and for the author to personally sign a copy have been available at past events.
