Technology and the Law: How technology is impacting the legal affairs of business

Thursday, May 16 | 11:30 am–1:30 pm

William Mitchell College of Law Auditorium

Speakers include:

  • Karlin Symons ’88, lawyer, business leader and executive director of the National Eagle Center
  • Christine Chalstrom ’91, president, chief executive officer, and founder of Shepherd Data Services
  • Doug Klint ’76, president and general counsel, TASER International
  • Bill McCormack ’73, executive vice president (retired) of Schwan Food Company.

The event is free and open to alumni and friends of the law school interested in exploring the intersection between law and business.

This is the second year Mitchell friends and alumni from across the region will gather to celebrate the Center for Law and Business and discuss an emerging topic of interest to lawyers and business leaders. Last year, the center had just wrapped up a successful first year during which it:

  • created a new course, focusing on core business topics
  • created an externship program that places students in business and business law environments
  • raised enough money from alumni and the legal and business communities to fund itself, instead of using tuition dollars.

In its second year, the center launched a new Law and Business Certificate Program, expanded the number of students enrolled, and engaged even more alumni and business leaders in teaching, volunteering, and offering real-world experience to students.
