Join us for our 2019 Professor Anthony J. Santoro Business Law Lecture Series where an experienced panel of lawyers and business people discuss what makes a good business lawyer.  Our diverse panel brings together the in-house counsel, attorney in private practice, and business perspective for a conversation to help RWU Law students, alums, and others in the community learn how business lawyers provide value.  The panel will offer key takeaways for current and aspiring business lawyers, such as how to build lasting lawyer-client relationships.
