Events

The Berkeley Center for Law and Business sponsors many events throughout the year. These activities are built around our outstanding core, affiliated, and adjunct faculty, as well as visiting scholars and seasoned professionals. BCLB often collaborates with other Berkeley Law centers, the Haas School of Business, the Economics Department, and other campus-wide organizations in presenting its seminars, workshops, and policy roundtables. Most events are open to students, faculty, the greater UC community as well as the public. For past events, click here.
