CLE: Business Lawyering with Professor Aaron Simowitz


The Portland Law Alumni Network (PLAN) invites you to join Professor Aaron Simowitz and your fellow Willamette College of Law alumni for this special CLE with a networking reception to follow. Register below to take advantage of this chance to strengthen your professional connections, socialize with other Willamette Law graduates and participate in a negotiation and deals making exercise.

Professor Aaron Simowitz, Assistant Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Business Lawyering Institute at the Willamette College of Law, will be leading participants in an interactive exercise on negotiating and deal-making while also making the case for why training future lawyers in the art and practice of business lawyering will set them up for professional success.

Professor Simowitz teaches international business transactions, debtor and creditor law, negotiation, and a seminar on resolving business disputes. His research focuses on cross-border business transactions, litigation, and arbitration.

The Business Lawyering Institute (BLI) trains future lawyers in the art and practice of business lawyering. The BLI also provides a space where business executives and lawyers convene to share best practices, identify trends, and explore synergies for successful business strategies.

The BLI has three guiding principles:

  1. Good lawyers are good problem solvers and value-added partners with their clients. They are not just experts in the law.
  2. Good lawyers understand the broad context, business or otherwise, in which legal issues arise.
  3. Good lawyers recognize that ethics and professionalism, including a commitment to diversity, are central to the profession.
