The 2020 Annual Conference of the Great Lakes ALSB will be hosted in Fall 2020 at the Holiday Inn Grand Rapids Downtown in the Grand Rapids, Michigan. There will be a Welcome Reception on Thursday, October 15th followed by presentations and the annual meeting on Friday, October 16th.
The annual meetings provide great opportunities to interact with colleagues interested in business law-related subjects. Presentations occur in a cordial and supportive environment; and the conference dinner is always festive and interesting.
Great Lakes ALSB is looking forward to increasing the level of involvement by students and faculty from diverse disciplines. Colleagues from accounting (e.g., tax, forensic, IFRS conversion), management (e.g., executive compensation, corporate governance, labor law), finance (e.g., complex financial instruments, securities and banking regulation), marketing (e.g., anticompetitive practices, trademarks, privacy vs. social media), information systems (e.g., identity theft, legal issues in cloud computing), economics (regulation of monopolies, protection of intellectual property), human resources, and other areas are often heavily engaged in legal topics. Encouraging multidisciplinary collaboration and scholarship is a high priority for us.
Additional information regarding the fall conference is posted under the menu item Registration and Hotel Information. There you will find registration information, a schedule of events, a call for participation, travel information and a listing of some of the interesting activities that can be pursued in the Grand Rapids area.
