Meet the Law Lecture Series-
We are honored to have U.S. District Judge R. Bryan Harwell from the U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina, Florence Division for the spring 2013 Meet the Law. Judge Harwell is one of the two Federal judges handling the full range of federal, civil and criminal matters for the eight counties of South Carolina comprising the Florence Division. He has also sat in special situations with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
A key factor for business students and future business leaders is developing the knowledge and skills in the interaction of business practices and decision making within the laws, regulatory and governmental structural environmental in which businesses operate.
Students in business schools nationwide are often introduced to the legal environment of business through business classes, readings, writing assignments and other traditional collegiate learning methods. As a college with applied focus, we believe strongly that direct experiences of students with those individuals actually engaged in the legal environment of business; those who make, interpret and/or adjudicate the laws and regulations governing business, add tremendous value to students understanding of the subject and the responsibilities the public expects in the conduct of business.
MEET THE LAW helps us attain these objectives by bringing high profile legal and government leaders to provide a lecture, question and answer session directly with our business law students. MEET THE LAW is a unique program where students get to listen to a high-level guest from within the government-legal-business environment on key business legal and regulatory issues that impact business decision making. MEET THE LAW is not a speech, but a topical class lecture that is available only to students enrolled in college business law and other related classes for that semester.
