The American University Business Law Review (BLR) is committed to publishing high-quality and high-impact pieces, from established and new scholars alike, that combine cutting-edge legal analysis with novel solutions to address the complex challenges that impact businesses today. As the sole business law publication in our nation’s capital, BLR also organizes and sponsors an annual symposium through which leading scholars and practitioners assemble to address a particularly pressing issue facing the business law community.
BLR is edited and produced by students at the American University Washington College of Law. BLR’s three volumes subsume a broad range of scholarship that covers developing legal trends in a variety of business law topics. BLR welcomes articles submitted by academics, practitioners, and law students; and it reviews submissions for possible publication on a rolling basis.

The symposium will address the appropriate scope of responsibilities of a CCO, issues inherent in their role as corporate advisor, the risks a CCO should be aware of, and how to mitigate those risks.
