2013 Symposium Cover

As one of the nation’s premier business law journals, the Virginia Law & Business Review is committed to discussing and presenting legal scholarship on the cutting edge of business law. Our seventh annual symposium— Game Changer: The Impact of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (“JOBS”) Act— continued that tradition. Held on April 5, 2013, the one year anniversary of President Obama signing the Act into law, an impressive host of speakers and panelists convened at the law school.

Considered one of the most significant changes to the federal securities laws in over fifty years, we asked our esteemed panelists to discuss the actual impact of the Act on entrepreneurs, angel investors, lawyers and venture capitalists. Will these new regulations have the intended effect of creating jobs and stabilizing the economy? Or do they carry more risk than reward? The goal of this event was to address the major challenges that face start-up companies from a business perspective, spark discussion around what to expect in the future, and inform students of opportunities that lie ahead in the industry.

We would like to again thank the John W. Glynn Jr. Law & Business Program and Darden’s Initiative for Business in Society (IBiS) for their generous support of our event.
