Each year, the student-run Allard Law & Business Society partners with the Centre to host the annual Welcome Reception. The event brings together students, faculty, and members of the legal community for an evening of networking and casual conversations.
The Centre regularly invites leading scholars from around the world to complement and expand its academic reach. In March 2017, the Centre for Business Law and the Liu Institute for Global Issues hosted "A Conversation with Robert Reich" at Allard Hall. Footage of this event can be found here. Dr. Reich visited the University of British Columbia as part of the Lind Initiative in U.S. Studies. From January to April 2017, the focus of the series was the Trump Impact: Change, Challenges, Responses. As part of this series, Dr. Reich was also interviewed by Dawna Friesen, Anchor and Executive Editor of Global National. Watch the full interview with Dawna Friesen here.
