The future of Corporate Lawyers

The EDHEC Lille campus is magnificent. It’s equipped with the latest facilities: a trading room, a huge auditorium, a gym, a cafeteria, and so on. It’s what the latest classes of EDHEC students are discovering. Their parents are also encouraged
to come meet the school’s administrators and professors and to tour the campus where their children are going to spend the next few years. A new school year, life on campus starts again. . . . For example, with the roundtable organised for the launch of the Business Law & Management Track on the Lille campus. The discussion with lawyers and students centred on the future of corporate lawyers. This new programme of study was created in response to changes in the marketplace, and students who take part in it will acquire dual competencies, both legal and managerial.

In Nice, too, it’s back to school for the more than 700 students, representing 29 nationalities, of the Financial Economics Track. Introduced by René Garcia, the new head of the Grande Ecole and MSc programmes, Philippe Tibi, president of
the French Association of Financial Markets, gave a talk to students in the masters programmes, as did Sanjay Sharma, chief risk officer at RBC Capital Markets, and Olivier Marion, representing PwC, partner to the MSc in Audit & Management Control. For Buddies Day, held at the start of every school year, new students were looked after by students already familiar with the campus. They got to know each other and met their future teachers during a treasure hunt and a cooking workshop. Everything is in place for the start of the 2013/2014 academic year.
