Brooklyn Law School has long been a leader in the areas of corporate governance, securities regulation, commercial law, and bankruptcy. Its new Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation unites the Law School’s existing diverse business and commercial law programs by providing a forum for scholarship that offers new perspectives on, and solutions to, real world business law and regulatory issues.
The programs of the Center are unique in the academy. They bring academics, adept in theoretical inquiry and policy analysis together with practitioners, regulators, and judges to study how best to improve the functioning of a market-based economy. The Center’s program focus on how the law regulates financial markets and business transactions, and how best to make such regulations effective.
