Opportunities for Business Law Profs - Deadlines Approaching!

Two opportunities for business law profs crossed my desk over the past few days.  One comes from Beate Sjåfjell, and the other from Caprice Roberts.  The topics?  Sustainability and SEALS.

Beate advises that there are a few places left at an upcoming conference on Corporate Sustainability Reforms: Securing Market Actors' Contribution to Global Sustainability.  The conference will be held in Oslo, Norway on October 24, 2019 and features contributions from around the world and across disciplines. She promotes the conference as follows:

We know that we need the contribution of all market actors: business, citizens, investors, and the public sector to achieve sustainability. However, a number of barriers, gaps and incoherencies that prevents market actors from contributing has been identified by the SMART Project. At this conference we will discuss how to facilitate the transition to sustainability, with the aim of identifying concrete proposals.

The conference is open to students, scholars, policy-makers, practitioners, and journalists. The deadline to register is October 17. There is no registration fee, and a lunch and reception are included for all participants.

Caprice wrote to remind me that the submissions portal,, is open for the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) 2020 annual meeting and conference at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale July 30 - August 5.  Guidelines are accessible from the same link. SEALS hopes to have a preliminary draft of the program up in early November.
I have focused on generating or promoting business law offerings at SEALS for many years.  John Anderson and I are looking to organize a discussion session for the 2020 conference on what motivates insider trading, and a few people have been asking around about some other business law topics.  The more, the merrier.  Let me know if I can help you in generating ideas for discussion sessions or other SEALS programs.
