The Business Law Society (BLS) brings together those Loyola law students who share a common interest in business law. Our goal is to provide law students the opportunity to gain practical knowledge in areas of business law, to meet other students with similar interests, and to gain insight from practicing lawyers in all areas of business law.

Here are some past events and programs the BLS sponsored:

  • Mentorship Program - including mentorship breakfast sponsored by a major
    law firm
  • Chicago Board of Trade Visit
  • Panel Discussion with New Associates
  • Meet and Greet with the Tax Law Professors

  • Curricular Planning
