Professor Gerry Ferguson Awarded the 2014 Dentons Student Research Business Law Fellowship

Professor Gerry Ferguson’s project, “Advising Business Clients on National and International Anti-Corruption Laws, Policies and Prevention Strategies”, has been selected for the 2014 Dentons Student Research Business Law Fellowship. The Fellowship will allow Professor Ferguson to have the benefit of working with a student who has completed first year of the JD program for two months in Summer 2014, assisting him in his project aimed at equipping firms in advising their business clients on national and international anti-corruption laws, policies and prevention strategies. The goal of the project is to provide the necessary tools for firms to better advise their clients around the world about how to navigate potential corruption issues in ways that would enhance their business and reputation while minimizing their exposure to allegations of corruption.

The Dentons’ Vancouver office provides the fellowship to a student researcher to allow the student to undertake a legal research project with a faculty member for 8 weeks during the summer and to work as a summer student at the firm for 8 weeks.
