McGill BLP SGI Transformative Business Law Summer Academy | 26 – 31 May 2024

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, the McGill Business Meter Blog, and the McGill Transformative Business Law Academy.

On June 1st the Academy presented its 2023 Impact Paper, "Sustainable Transformation of Business and Finance: A Democratic Challenge in an Age of Climate Change and Artificial Intelligence". The paper provides policy recommendations that show a path for business law and finance to better account for climate justice, meaningful transparency, and algorithm accountability in the digital age.  

We thank all the faculty, fellows, and distinguished guests who have made the 2023 Transformative Business Law Summer Academy possible. A complete list is available here:
