One of the Philadelphia Bar Association's oldest and largest sections, the Business Law Section offers business lawyers numerous educational opportunities across a broad range of substantive areas as well as opportunities to network with other attorneys sharing similar professional interests. The Section's committees plan continuing legal education programs and keep their members up to date on current events in more than a dozen substantive areas.
The goal of the Business Law Section's Web pages is to provide Section members with up-to-date information that they can use in their practices.
