Welcome to the McGill Business Law Platform

With an overall vision of how business law has an impact on both society and on other legal areas, the Professorship in Business Law serves as a liaison between the Faculty of Law and leading practitioners, in Montreal, in Canada and internationally.

Given the central role of business organizations and commerce in today’s world, McGill Law is committed to strengthening teaching, research and outreach in business law.

The McGill Business Law Platform, which the Professorship in Business Law has just launched, will become a hub of excellence in business law on par with McGill Law's other areas of recognized strengths such as human rights, comparative law and public policy.

Key parts of the McGill Business Law Platform are the Seminars in Business and Society and the McGill Business Meter Blog.
