Rethinking Business Associations

A Curricular Reform Workshop, January 2018

With the support of the McGill University Faculty of Law and the Scott Henderson Fund, the Law, Governance & Society Lab is organizing a workshop bringing together a small group of scholars, students, and practitioners to rethink the structure and content of Business Associations in the light of changing economic, social, and legal practices in Canada. The workshop will most notably focus on whether and how Business Associations should be broadened to include legal vehicles that are relevant to the emergence of the social economy and the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to integrate Indigenous legal practices into Canadian legal education. The workshop aims to generate recommendations on potential curricular reforms that could be adopted in the field of corporate law at McGill as well as develop curricular resources that could be used by legal scholars and lawyers across Canada.
