Members of the Business Law Society form virtual work groups that develop business-law related issues in a variety of formats, including: video segments, compliance reports, best practices guides and manuals, teleconferences, practice memoranda, comment letters, wikis, apps, podcasts, issue briefs and other nonscholarly, practice-oriented formats. Each work group is comprised of a core of student partners and associates that create a branching network to professors, alumni, legal experts, practitioners, journalists, courts, regulators and other policymakers.
The Society operates as a single network within a virtual communiversity (a student-centered, self-structured, social media space) based on the issue-driven combination of social media to organize law students’ research, analysis, education outreach and advocacy as it relates to business law issues. Upper-tier classes are being designed to support the network as part of the transition from a classroom-centered to a practice-centered model for legal education.
