18 March witnessed the most recent of the Corporate Law Academy sessions, chaired by Prof Aleksander Chłopecki, tutor of the Capital Markets Law Academic Club, and Dawid Marciniak, associate with GESSEL.

The workshop dwelled on the issue of when, and why, a contract becomes a financial instrument, and the participants were invited to ask questions and to debate the associated topics.

The Corporate Law Academy is an initiative of the Capital Markets Law Academic Club addressed to third-year (and above) law students seeking a broader understanding of capital markets law. It features invitation-only substantive workshops led by lawyers from the project’s partner firms. The initiative is now in its seventh year; the 35 participating students were selected based on an admissions test and on their CVs.
