Hyderabad, Dec 10 (IANS) The Indian School of Business (ISB) will Tuesday host a conference on 'The future of corporate business in India and the role of the legal profession'.
Jointly organized by the Harvard Law School's Programme on the Legal Profession and the ISB's Bharti Institute of Public Policy (BIPP), the conference will focus on the intersection between business and law in India's corporate sector, with an eye on demand, regulation and evolution of professional services in the coming decade.
The conference will extend the critical dialogue begun last year in New Delhi and Cambridge with respect to Harvard Law School's multidisciplinary global research collaboration on Globalization, Lawyers, and Emerging Economies (GLEE), said a statement from ISB.
This research initiative brings together leading scholars, policymakers and practitioners from around the world to examine how economic liberalization and other forces of globalization are reshaping the corporate legal profession in important emerging economies such as India, China, and Brazil. It also examines how these changes are in turn reshaping legal education, the delivery of legal services, and the rule of law.
Corporate Affairs Minister Sachin Pilot will deliver the keynote address while David Wilkins, vice dean, Harvard Law School, leaders from business, research and academia will speak on topics like demands of globalization on corporate business, evolution and regulation of professional services and future market for corporate legal services in India.
