Law and Business Society (4 positions)
The Law & Business Society is a student-run organization at Allard School of Law. We are dedicated to helping current law students engage with the leading business law firms in Vancouver, while helping to establish Allard School of Law as a premier business law education destination. Representatives will help firms organize networking events for your colleagues. The time commitment is very manageable, as you will likely only be responsible for one or two events in the school year. Further, most of the firms take charge and just want help getting an RSVP list and getting the word out about the event.
