Abstract

On May 29-31, 2019, the School of Business at the University of Connecticut hosted the Summit on the Academic Profession of Business Law (summit). The purpose of this summit was to identify and disseminate best academic practices from thought leaders, acquire professional development of teaching, research, and service initiatives, and develop better responsiveness to the mission and expectations of relevant stakeholders. This summit was the first of its kind in the business law discipline, focusing almost entirely on the field and its unique value proposition in the rapidly changing environments of business schools, higher education, and global commerce. Information was shared in various sessions ranging from transformative practices in business law to the future of AACSB International (AACSB). This article is a report of the summit, its panels and presentations, and the future of the discipline.
