Forums

LexNoir has established a number of Forums.  The mission of each Forum is to be a resource for the study and discussion of the legal aspects of each of the substantive topics covered.  We hope to:

  • To provide high quality educational programs and publications;
  • To stimulate discussion to educate various communities on issues of current concern; and
  • To enhance the professional growth of Forum members.

Our current Forums include the following:

 

Corporate Commercial Forum

 

The LexNoir Corporate Commercial Forum, sponsored by Nixon Peabody and Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs focuses on the study and discussion of cross-border corporate and commercial law developments.   Its work is highlighted through publications and webinars designed to showcase the expertise of those in the African Diaspora and others.  Regardless of your level of experience and expertise, we welcome you to participate in our activities.  Assist your colleagues by sharing best practices stories, post information about an enlightening article you recently read, ask questions and seek answers to business challenges.  We believe the information and contacts you gain through this forum will be invaluable.

Environmental Forum

 

The LexNoir Environmental Forum, sponsored by Beveridge & Diamond, provides news and information on environmental issues across the globe and sponsors programs that enhance the professional development of lawyers and non-lawyers in the industry. Through its online materials, webinars and seminars, the Environmental Forum explores emerging issues and developments including those in air and water, climate change, land and wildlife, environmental transactions, natural resources and environmental justice.  It has a particular focus on those environmental issues that impact the continent of Africa and the African Diaspora, regardless of their location across the globe.  While drawing attention to these issues, it also strives to educate the legal community and the environmental community on issues of current concern and to stimulate discussion on these issues in a manner that appeals to all levels of experience and expertise.  We invite you to participate in LexNoir Environmental Forum activities and become a part of our community.  Click here for the Beveridge & Diamond sponsored Environmental Forum.
