CBLA hosts its mentorship kick-off event this Wednesday! Those who have signed up for the mentorship program will have an opportunity to meet their mentors in Lenfest Cafe from 8-10 pm. Our mentorship program has been an ongoing resource for first year students to get advice from 2Ls and 3Ls on how to successfully navigate law school and the career search process.
Join CBLA for a guided tour of the financial district with Wall Street Walks (spots available only to those who have already submitted an RSVP):
"Panics, Crashes and the Financial Crisis
The 2008 financial crisis is the latest crash in a long line of crashes.
Perhaps you've heard about the Great Depression and Black Tuesday in 1929, but did you know about the other widely felt and impacting crashes since 1792, when the stock market system was established as we know it today?
We contrast and compare the most impactful crashes, lessons learned and how they shaped regulations, created the SEC, FDIC and other organizations that helped the government manage the 2008 financial crisis.
All of our tour guides have worked in finance on Wall Street and can speak about the recent financial crisis from personal experience.
Tour stops include the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall, Trinity Church/grave of Alexander Hamilton, Federal Reserve Bank, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Standard and Poor’s, Bowling Green, Fraunces Tavern, Trump Building US Customs House, Wall Street Bull and other sites associated with the stock market."
Columbia Business Law Association will be hosting an information session on September 17th in William and June Warren Hall, room 107 from 12:10-1:00 pm. All 1Ls, Transfers, and LLMs are welcome to come learn more about our organization. Details will be provided about membership, our fall agenda, and our upcoming mentorship program.
