Frequently Asked Questions

Do you only focus on business law issues?

Business can affect almost every legal area. While we focus on business-related topics, the articles we publish are not limited in one particular way. The characteristic they share is that in some way, shape, or form, the issues impact the business community. We strive to bring the most poignant business law issues to the forefront of legal discourse. Thus, we encourage anyone with an interest in communications, trade, white-collar, antitrust, policy-making, space law, national security, international law, corporate law, or environmental law– to consider joining AUBLR.
